I have a defined list. It should be allowed to type starting letters and filter the list by that letter typed, just like the Combo box in Visual Basic. Now I have to scroll the all data and it is very difficult as the list is very long.
Please help me.
Thanks in advance.
How to make a combo box like Visual Basic?
If you are using VB.NET, the following are the guidelines you will need for creating a combo box:
First you will open Visual Basic and then create a new project.
Thereafter you will add a button to your new form, and then you will locate the Combo Box on the Visual Basic .NET toolbar as follows:
You will thereafter double click the icon so ad to add the Combo Box to your form.
The combo box is meant to limit the choices the user will have, and therefore you will need to set it up to do that as follows:
You will need to click on your Combo Box, and then you will locate the Item property from the Properties Box:
After that you will need to click the gray button, and then using the String Collection Editor, you will type an item and press Return.
You will need to Enter several items, and click the OK button at the bottom to close the editor.
You can now run the program and test out your new Combo Box.
