How to enable AutoComplete behavior in WinForms SyntaxEditor (EditControl)?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: EditControl

Enable AutoComplete behavior

The WinForms Syntax Editor (Edit Control) supports intellisense behavior as like in Visual Studio. You can enable the AutoComplete behavior in its intellisense process by using the UseAutoComplete property. The following code example demonstrates the same.


void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
   this.editControl1.ContextChoiceController.UseAutocomplete = true;


Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
   Me.editControl1.ContextChoiceController.UseAutocomplete = True
End Sub
