ComboBox "Not in List" handling

Is there an event that can be used to detect when the user has typed an entry that is not in the list of a bound ComboBoxAdv or ComboBoxAutoComplete? ting0AAny examples of how to handle this would be appreciated. --Van Baker

Hi Van, I am afraid, presently there is no such event associated with the ComboBoxAutoComplete or the ComboBoxAdv. However, we could consider this as a feature request for a future release of Essential Suite. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

That would be a useful new feature. Meanwile, my work-around was to handle the Validating event and in it try to find the combobox.Text value in the list using the FindString() method. If it''s not found, then that means the value entered in the combobox''s textbox was not in the list. Perhaps not very efficient, but it works. Thanks, --Van Baker
