Does comboboxext not support autocomplete?

Is the comboboxext control not supported by the autocomplete control? dropping an autocomplete control doesnt create a property for enableonautocomplete for the comboboxetx like it does the combobox.

Now im trying to get around this by using the autocomplete with a textbox to achive a similar result. But it seems to just ignore the autosuggest mode, and insists on autoappending.

Ive got the autosuggest to work on the textbox, but id still like to be able to autocomplete on the comboboxext. Should it be possible.

Hi, Yes, this should be possible. We just haven't implemented design-time support for this. You can easily turn on AutoSuggest for the textbox in the ComboBoxExt, in code, like this: // In your constructor after the call to InitializeComponent: this.autoComplete1.SetAutoComplete(this.comboBoxExt1.TextBox, AutoCompleteModes.AutoSuggest); As you can see you basically turn on AutoSuggest for the TextBox used inside the ComboBoxExt. In case you are not familiar, AutoAppend is already implemented natively inside ComboBoxExt. Regards, Praveen Ramesh
