Is there a way to format the text in a standard TextBox control that uses an AutoComplete component based on the data source of the AutoComplete?

Yes,It is possible to format the text in a standard TextBox control that uses an AutoComplete component based on the data source of the AutoComplete.

You can handle the AutoCompleteItemSelected event and retrieve other columns of same table using args.ItemArray[Index] where you need to specify the index of column required.Also,the args.SelectedValue can display the required text as shown below. 

C#

private void autoComplete2_AutoCompleteItemSelected(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteItemEventArgs args)

{

string CurrentText= this.textBox2.Text;

args.SelectedValue = CurrentText + args.ItemArray[args.MatchColumnIndex].ToString() +"-"+ args.ItemArray[0].ToString()+ ","+args.ItemArray[1].ToString ();

args.Handled = true;

}

 

VB

Private Sub autoComplete2_AutoCompleteItemSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.AutoCompleteItemEventArgs)

Dim CurrentText As String= Me.textBox2.Text

args.SelectedValue = CurrentText & args.ItemArray(args.MatchColumnIndex).ToString() +"-"+ args.ItemArray(0).ToString()+ ","+args.ItemArray(1).ToString ()

args.Handled = True

End Sub
