How can I set autosuggest popup to open when the control gets the focus?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: AutoComplete


You can use the ProcessAutoComplete method inorder to achieve this.


private void textBox1_GotFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)


this.autoComplete1.ProcessAutoComplete (this.textBox1.Text );



Private Sub textBox1_GotFocus(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)


End Sub

Also,we have the SingleClick property which displays the AutoSuggest list when the user Clicks on the target control.


this.autoComplete1.SingleClick =true;


Me.autoComplete1.SingleClick = True
