so in a browser I'd start typing

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?
