advanced datagrid, drop down list, listbox

hi
I am looking after the following "FREE" controls:
A datagrid list box which allows people to drag and drop rows so that they are sorted. Up and Down buttons are required too.
A dropdown list which does text auto complete like internet explorer does with the address field.

Thank you.

for the dropdown list which does text auto complete like internet explorer does with the address field take a look at this:

the function does not work. anyway, the signature of the key up function is not identical to the one in the example.

here's a sub in vb.net that autocomplete a combobox. you should call it within the KeyUp event of the combobox, passing the combobox and the e.KeyCode as parameter:

    Private Sub myCombo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles cbxUtente.KeyUp
        cbxAutocomplete(myCombo,e.Keycode)
    End Sub


    Sub cbxAutocomplete(ByVal myCombobox As ComboBox, ByVal myKey As Keys)
        Dim index As Integer
        Dim actual As String
        Dim found As String

        'Do nothing for certain keys such as the arrows and backspace and delete
        If myKey = Keys.Back Or myKey = Keys.Left Or myKey = Keys.Right Or (myKey = Keys.Up) Or (myKey = Keys.Delete) Or (myKey = Keys.Down) Then
            Exit Sub
        End If
        ' Store the actual text that has been typed
        actual = myCombobox.Text

        ' Find the first match for the typed value
        index = myCombobox.FindString(actual)

        'Get the text of the first match
        If index > -1 Then
            found = myCombobox.Items(index).ToString()
            'this.comboBox1.Text = found;
            myCombobox.SelectedIndex = index
            ' Select the automatically added text so further typing will replace it
            myCombobox.SelectionStart = actual.Length
            myCombobox.SelectionLength = found.Length
        End If
    End Sub
