    Try this... Drop a listview and a textbox on a form, then put this code in:

    Public Class Form1

    Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
    For ix As Integer = 0 To ListView1.Items.Count - 1
    Dim ls As String = ListView1.Items(ix).Text
    If String.Compare(ls.Substring(0, TextBox1.Text.Length), TextBox1.Text, True) = 0 Then
    ListView1.Items(ix).Selected = True
    Exit For
    End If
    Next ix
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    With ListView1
    .Columns.Add("Abadaba", 70)
    .View = View.Details
    .HideSelection = False
    End With
    End Sub
    End Class

    Re: VB.NET : AutoComplete textbox .

    This is fantastic, I was wondering though how I could add a value??? so that when you select the item, an id would be set to run in an SQL query???? i have this working with a listbox, but i would like to add this with the list view??????

    Thumbs up Re: VB.NET : AutoComplete textbox .

    [Highlight=VB] Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    ' Populates the list box using DataSource.
    ' DisplayMember is used to display just the long name of each state.

    Dim USStates As New ArrayList()
    USStates.Add(New USState("Alabama", "AL"))
    USStates.Add(New USState("Washington", "WA"))
    USStates.Add(New USState("West Virginia", "WV"))
    USStates.Add(New USState("Wisconsin", "WI"))
    USStates.Add(New USState("Wyoming", "WY"))
    AddHandler ListBox1.SelectedValueChanged, AddressOf ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged
    ListBox1.DataSource = USStates
    ListBox1.DisplayMember = "LongName"
    ListBox1.ValueMember = "ShortName"
    end sub

    Private Sub ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If ListBox1.SelectedIndex <> -1 Then
    TextBox3.Text = ListBox1.SelectedValue.ToString()
    End If
    End Sub 'ListBox1_SelectedValueChanged

    This is what I have but need to add this to the listview, but the selected value isn't available. I'm trying to avoid an array with the values set, and using the selected index .....

    Figured it out, I used the keypress property, ahehaeahe
