    Hi Matt,

    You can use MultiAutoComplete for these requirements. This control does not support tags by default but with a little tweak, we can add support for tags.

    You can refer to the sample attached.

    Thanks for the reply! The tag code does work, but it appears that it interferes with the edit events if "trackChanges: true" is set.

    See attached project. If I edit tags and switch rows, the edited row is not added to itemsEdited. If I copy that row and paste into another, the pasted row appears in itemsEdited.

    Also, It appears that cancelling edits isn't working, but I did not build a test for it.

    Hi Matt,

    I was able to replicate both issues. I will investigate this and will update you as soon as possible.
