Can I use the AutoComplete control in a UserControl?


The AutoComplete control can be used in a UserControl just like it can be used in a form.

In the case that the AutoComplete control is used in a UserControl, the parent form of the UserControl has to be set to the ParentForm property of the AutoComplete control.


private void UserControl1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


this.autoComplete1.ParentForm = this.ParentForm;

this.autoComplete1.DataSource = this.items;



Private Sub UserControl1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

Me.autoComplete1.ParentForm = Me.ParentForm Me.autoComplete1.DataSource = Me.items End Sub
