I see examples of the autocomplete control by itself - but nothing on the ComboBoxAutoComplete control. Does it work - I have added items at design time but it does not autocomplete as I type at runtime. Am I missing a setting?

Hi Autocompletion is a feature enhancement for edit controls and is typically used with edit controls (TextBox controls) or with controls that have an embedded edit control (such as ComboBox controls). Since the .NET framework does not provide any built in support for auto completion in the System.Windows.Forms.TextBox or System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox classes, the Essential Tools AutoComplete class provides an easy way of adding Autocompletion. Check out the sample located at Syncfusion\Essential Suite\Tools\samples\Editors Package\AutoComplete\AutoCompleteDemo which demonstrates how you can add autocompletion to a combobox. Regards, Arun

Hi The ComboBoxAutoComplete control currently included in Essential Tools is a preview control to collect feedback and improve it. Any input from customers will be used to fix/enhance the control. Thanks Arun

Hi, The ComboBoxAutoComplete control derives from the Windows Forms ComboBox control and uses an AutoComplete control internally to provide the drop down completion as well as the up down navigation of the ComboBox. Please see the attached sample. Thank you for your patience. Regards, Davis

Greetings, I tried the attached example. It seems to use an early version of the AutoCompleteComboBox control because it gives an error on the line this.comboBox3.AutoCompleteControl.ChangeDataManagerPosition = true; Can you please provide a more recent example and preferably in VB.NET Thanx > Hi, > > The ComboBoxAutoComplete control derives from the Windows Forms ComboBox control and uses an AutoComplete control internally to provide the drop down completion as well as the up down navigation of the ComboBox. > > Please see the attached sample. > > Thank you for your patience. > > Regards, > > Davis

Hi, Thanks for the feedback. You are seeing the error because you have a older version of Essential Tools. Please post your version of Essential Tools and I will provide instructions on upgrading to a later version that supports the ChangeDataManagerPosition property. I will also post a VB.NET version of this project within the next few hours. Thank you for your patience. Regards, Davis
