I have a list box and a text box, i would like to set the list box and the text box up to function in a similer manner to the combobox. So if for example the list box was a list of words sorted and i started to type the work play into the text box i want to scrol the list box to the p section and the the pl section and so on. Any ides on how to do this. The second part of the question is to do with the first list box, i would like to set the tool tip text to the same as what the mouse is over at the time. Any help will be great, i have vb6 if that helps.
