Hi Michael,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Yes, your requirement to display the AutoComplete upon ButtonEdit Child button click, can be achieved by using its ProcessAutoComplete function. Please make use of the below code snippet.


Code Snippet[C#]:


private void buttonEditChildButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            this.autoComplete1.ActiveFocusControl = this.textBoxExt2;

            //To show the autoCompletePopup

            this.autoComplete1.ProcessAutoComplete(this.textBoxExt2.Text, string.Empty, Point.Empty);

            this.autoComplete1.ActiveFocusControl = null;

        }



We have also prepared the sample for your reference and it can be downloaded from the below location.

Hi Michael,
 
Thank you for your update.
 
Yes, it is possible to create a custom control for the reported requirement by using ButtonEdit and AutoComplete control. Please make use of below code snippet for your reference.
 
Code Snippet[C#]:

//Change parent form of the autoComplete

this.autocomplete.ParentForm = this.ParentForm;

// Set DataSource.

this.buttonEditExt1.DataSource = view;

//To set DisplayMember

this.buttonEditExt1.DisplayMember = "place";

 

private object m_DataSource;

/// <summary>

/// Get/sets the DataSource for the ButtonEditExt

/// </summary>

  public object DataSource

   {

        get { return m_DataSource; }

        set

          {

               this.m_DataSource = value;

               //Change parent form of the UserControl

               this.autocomplete.ParentForm = this.ParentForm;

               this.autocomplete.DataSource = value;

                this.autocomplete.SetAutoComplete(this.TextBox, AutoCompleteModes.MultiSuggestExtended);

          }

  }

private string displayMember = string.Empty;

/// <summary>

/// Get/Sets the DisplayMember for the ButtonEditExt

/// </summary>

   public String DisplayMember

     {

         get { return displayMember; }

         set

          {

              this.displayMember = value;

              if(this.displayMember != string.Empty)

                  this.autocomplete.RefreshColumns();

              foreach(AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo column in this.autocomplete.Columns)

               {

                   if(column.ColumnName == value)

                    {

                        column.Visible = true;

                    }

                    else

                    {

                        column.Visible = false;

                    }

                }

            }

        }

Hi Michael,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

The reported behavior occurs, as ProcessAutoComplete function has been invoked during Design Time. Please make use of the below code snippet to resolve the reported behavior.

Code Snippet[C#]:

if (!this.DesignMode && this.autocomplete.DataSource != null)

            {

                this.autocomplete.ActiveFocusControl = this.TextBox;

                //To show the autoCompletePopup

                this.autocomplete.ProcessAutoComplete(this.TextBox.Text, string.Empty, Point.Empty);

            }
