GridListBox and AutoComplete

Hi, I''m looking for a list box which responds to key stroks and updates selection as in auto complete feature. I tried to work with GridListControl, but auto complete doesn''t seems to work there?! Any control or way to do this? Thanks, Gil K

The standalone GridListControl does not support AutoComplete, but the GirdListControl dropdown that appears in cells does. If you just want to do a first letter match, you could probably do this by handling the GridListControl.KeyDown event. Here is a little minimal handler that worked for me in our GridListControlSample. (You have to click the control first to it focus. But after that typing a letter takes you to the State Abbreviation.)

private void ListBox1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
	//Console.WriteLine("ListBox1_KeyDown");
	int start = this.ListBox1.SelectedIndex;
	int i = start + 1;
	string s = e.KeyCode.ToString();
	while (i > 0 && i < this.ListBox1.Grid.RowCount)
	{
		if(this.ListBox1.Grid[i + 1, 1].Text.StartsWith(s))
		{
			this.ListBox1.SelectedIndex = i;
			return;
		}
		i += 1;
	}
	i = 0;
	while(i < start)
	{
		if(this.ListBox1.Grid[i + 1, 1].Text.StartsWith(s))
		{
			this.ListBox1.SelectedIndex = i;
			return;
		}
		i += 1;
	}
}
