How do I add multiple columns for an AutoComplete DropDown?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: AutoComplete |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


Columns in the AutoComplete control are specified through the Columns property of the AutoComplete control.

The Columns property of the AutoComplete control is a collection of AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo objects and once the Columns property has been initialized, the individual columns can be changed by modifying the attributes of the corresponding AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo object.


this.autoComplete1.DataSource =this.dataView1 ;

this.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("EmployeeID", 100, true);

this.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo2 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("LastName", 100, true);

this.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo3 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("BirthDate", 100, true);

this.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo4 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("City", 100, true);


Me.autoComplete1.DataSource =Me.dataView1

Me.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("EmployeeID", 100, True)

Me.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo2 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("LastName", 100, True)

Me.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo3 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("BirthDate", 100, True)

Me.autoCompleteDataColumnInfo4 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteDataColumnInfo("City", 100, True)
