Is there any way to make the filterbar have autocomplete capabilities?

To get the autocomplete using the standard GridFilterBar, try this. In the sample we ship (), remove the line in SetTableIntoGridAndWireFilterBar that reads theFilterBar.WireGrid(this.gridDataBoundGrid1); and replace it with this code. GridStyleInfo style = new GridStyleInfo(); style.ModifyStyle(this.gridDataBoundGrid1.BaseStylesMap["Header"].StyleInfo, StyleModifyType.Copy); style.CellType = "ComboBox"; style.ExclusiveChoiceList = true; style.BaseStyle = "Standard"; style.Font.Bold = false; style.BackColor = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.TableStyle.BackColor; style.Borders.Bottom = new GridBorder(GridBorderStyle.Dashed); style.DropDownStyle = GridDropDownStyle.AutoComplete; theFilterBar.WireGrid(this.gridDataBoundGrid1, style); This adds the DropDownStyle = AutoComplete setting to the default combobox.

Is there any way to make the filterbar use 'LIKE a*' to filter the data, instead of using the '=a' currently?

If you want to see the items in the grid dynamically filter as you type into the filter cell, then here is a little sample that does this. It uses a derived GridFilterBar class to implement this functionality.
