The 'between' value sets the mode when the combo searches for any occurrence of the typed text in items (in contrast to the 'start' mode that performs searching from the item's beginning).
Also the 'between' mode isn't supported by dhtmlxConnector. So, if you've decided to use it and deal with the server, you will need to provide a fully custom server-side solution.
