I use a comboBoxBase with GridListControl and a DataView.
I noticed when the text input or the cell value are mixed low and upper case characters then in
English it selects the right value.
Casing doesn''t matter.
But in another language, Greek in my case, it doesn''t select the value with
low case characters and the text input
is upper case.
DataView Sorting is fine.
What happens ?

Does it autocomplete properly when you type the proper case in Greek?
Are you using a Greek version of Windows?
Using an English version of Windows, and having Greek words in a ListBox, the comparisons fail for me because the key input is in a different unicode code page than the characters in the listbox. So, when I type an upper case N to try to find the Greek word for November (listed in the listbox), the FindItem in the Shared\Src\UI\Comboboxbase.cs file fails because the keystroke is 78 and the first letter of the month is 925.
If you look at things down in FindItem, is this why things fail in your situation?

proper case - YES.
English Version of Windows XP.
1. Key Input - UpperCase -
it doesn''t find lower case.
2. Key Input - cell value -both
UpperCase. Some times it fails.
I think it depends from some Greek
Letters or the existance of space
I can''t describe with presicion.
It seems that the correct item is
highlighted for a moment but it
doesn''t compliment the selection.
In other case it doesn''t react at
3. I''m writing in Greek - Al .
I have Alexandr,ALEXANDROPOL,Alex.
When I press Ale - autocomplete
AlEXANDROPOL, and it doesn''t change
if I press Alex.
With a combobox from another vendor
I haven''t problem.
4. Another problem after correct selection . If there is a serie of
identical items ( the first letters)
it doesn''t display them up in the list
to choose but it shows the first item in the end of list . I can''t see the others unless I go down with the scroll

We can see this problem using months of the year. In English upper case D matches lower case d. But in Greek, the upper case D is flagged as a control char (char.IsControl), and for that reason, this char is not passed onto the combobox, and thus there is no match. But some keys work. For example, in Greek, upper case S (for example) is not flagged as a Control character, and things work. So, we will have to look into why IsControl is flagging upper case deltas as control characters. I assume, there are probably other keys strokes that are treated this way, and would cause this problem.
I have forward this problem to the tools engineer that handles this control so we can try to have a resolution.

As for the 3rd case I mentioned before:
Αλέξ - ΑΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΟΥΠΟΛΗ-Αλέξανδρ.
It doesn''t recognise the character with tone έ.
I hope you can see it in this message.
One temporary solution is to change
everything in uppercase.
But I will need it .
Also the 4th case is crusial , to display the identical items up in the
list ( see windows combobox).
Do your best.
I would replace gridListControl but
I need the QueryCellInfo event
(I change the foreign keys)

We see the same behavior using the Windows Forms ListBox, so just replacing the GridListControl will not avoid this problem. The problem *appears* to be with char.IsControl improperly marking these characters.
