<p>How to provide AutoComplete support for ComboBoxBarItem ?</p>

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


This can be achieved by handling the ComboBoxBarItem''s TextBoxBound event and get hold of the internal TextBox. Set this TextBox as the target control for an AutoComplete and populate the AutoComplete control with appropriate data as explained in code snippet below.



 // Handle the ComboBoxBarItem''s TextBoxBound event

 TextBox textBox;

private void ComboBoxBarItem_TextBoxBound (object sender, TextBoxBoundEventArgs args)


this.textBox = args.TextBox;

// Set AutoComplete control on the ComboBoxBarItem''s internal TextBox

this.autoComplete1.SetAutoComplete(this.textBox, AutoCompleteModes.Both);

this.autoComplete1.DataSource = _dataSource;




' Handle the ComboBoxBarItem''s TextBoxBound event

 Private textBox As TextBox

Private Sub ComboBoxBarItem_TextBoxBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As TextBoxBoundEventArgs)

Me.textBox = args.TextBox

' Set AutoComplete control on the ComboBoxBarItem''s internal TextBox

Me.autoComplete1.SetAutoComplete(Me.textBox, AutoCompleteModes.Both)

Me.autoComplete1.DataSource = _dataSource

End Sub

Please refer the below sample that demonstrates this functionality and let me know if this helps you
