multicolumn combo box problem

I am trying to use the MultiColumnComboBox in the following way. When the focus is on the Combobox control, the user should be able to type in the value and as they are typing, the dropdown list should be displayed and the selection should go down to the closest match as the user types... The value can ONLY be one from the list (i.e, if the typed value is not in the list, the combobox should display the start of the list when it loses focus) I am using MultiColumnComboBox with ''DropDownStyle'' property as ''DropDown'' and everything seems to be working fine except that as the user types in the value, the list seems to be going to the right selections, but the value itself is NOT being selected. It only highlights the value for a split second and then disappears... and the selected value is not being returned even though the value appears in the combobox when it loses focus. However, the value is being returned just fine if the selection is made manually with the mouse... so the value/row MUST be highlighted in order to return the selected value because I am using "SelectedIndex" to get the value...

Hi Jayesh

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support

On analyzing the reported query, we come to know that you want to highlight the value or row of ComboBoxItem when it matches the searched text . For this you can use the SelectionMode property , and the same has been depicted in below code:

Code:

this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.SelectionMode = SelectionMode.one;

We have also attached sample and screenshot for your reference in below link:
