ComboBoxAdv with AutoSelection

I am trying to find an example that will allow us to use a ComboBoxAdv control with AutoSelection of items as the user types in the text. Currently, you provide AutoCompletion which only displays a subset of matching items from a data source in a dropdown box. I reviewed most examples in the forum and the AutoCompletionDemo, but none of them have what we want. In our case, we just want the text typed by the user to locate a matching item in the list of available items in ComboBoxAdv. Is there an example for this that we could use? Thanks, WNC

Found a temporary fix to auto selection by setting the DropDownStyle to DropDown. When DropDownList is used every character typed moved the selection to the option starting with the typed character. The only limitation is that the user is not provided the drop down list of the options while typing the text.

Hi WNC, Unfortunately, I''m not aware of any way to cause the dropdown to open when a key is pressed. The only suggestion I can give you is to try setting MatchFirstCharacterOnly to false. However, I do have a sample with a simple-style ComboBox (with the dropdown always open in the form of ListBox) if you''re interested. It isn''t a ComboBoxAdv however. Please let me know if you''re interested. Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion Inc.
