How do I create a text box where options are given as typing like address bar in a browser

I want to create a text box in C# that performs similar to the address bar in a browser.

so in a browser I'd start typing

www.exp
and below it would be listed
www.experts-exchange.com
www.exponents.com
etc..

I have an array of strings and I'd like to get that effect.  How do I create that.

Hi ICPooreman,

Which version of C#? 2003 or 2005?

In 2005, you have the autocomplete features on the TextBox object that allows you to do that. See an article I wrote in June 2006 from http://emoreau.s2i.com/

Cheers!

Thanks that worked!!  

One more thing though I want to generate the autoCompleteCustomSource values from an array of strings I'm going to be reading from a db/registry is there an onload feature or something so that I can read in the values when the form is opened or a way to get those values into the field?
