Hi ! I would like to select an entry from a DB Lookop ComboBox by typing in the beginning of the entry and filtering out all other possibilities, like IE does it in its URL hitory.

kind regards

When I was looking to do something similar I found this link to be very usefull: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&threadm=20000306112241.16066.00002067%40nso-fp.aol.com&rnum=1&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Ddelphi%2Bcombobox%2Bautocomplete%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26safe%3Doff%26site%3Dgroups . It's got a complete OnKeyPress handler to add this functionality.
