    combo box suggestappend

    I have a combo box that is set to suggestappend and the source is the list in the combo box.

    when the user clicks to make the list drop down the selection is made with the mouse and the selection
    is entered into a textbox. when the user enters a letter into the combobox a list shows with every item
    in the list that begins with the letter entered.

    for example, once the list of the items starting with "m" are shown, how does the user select the item so
    it can be entered into the text box the same as if you actually clicked on the item in the complete list
    of items?

    What's is the exact problem? There are some options to accept the suggest
    * Press Tab key
    * Press any arrow key
    * Press End key
    * Press PgDn, PgUP

    Maybe there are other but cannot remember now

    well, I figured it out. you can only use the keys, no mouse, then you use the arrow keys to select then enter.

    it works but I consider it clunky.

    thanks

    What's wrong with that? It is a suggestion so you have to tell the ComboBox you accept it by pressing any of keys described above or just continue typing if you didn't find what you want.

    If you want to use the mouse then click on the item in the dropdown list.
