Since we are committed to using a gridlistcontrol in this custom dropdown we would like to move to and select a cell by pressing the key of the first letter of cell's text value (the cells are arranged alphabetically). Once the cell is in focus the user clicks ctrl (or some other key) to select it. There should be the ability to make multiple selections. Is there a sample with this functionality?

Thank you for your help

Hi Ed,

If your intension is to have autocomplete fuctionality in GridListControl dropdown, This can be achieved by setting the DropDownStyle to AutoComplete.

this.gridControl1[2, 2].CellType = GridCellTypeName.GridListControl;
this.gridControl1[2, 2].DropDownStyle = GridDropDownStyle.AutoComplete;
this.gridControl1[2, 2].DataSource = GetTable();
this.gridControl1[2, 2].DisplayMember = "Description";
this.gridControl1[2, 2].ValueMember = "Description";



Please try this and let me know if ths helps.
