Here's another DataGridView question:
I have a column in my DataGridView that is defined as DataGridViewComboBoxCells.
The cell is databound to a table in my database and gets its values from a single column in that table.
There are presently ~65 items in that column and it will continue to grow to a max of about 95
My problem is that when the combobox is clicked and the elements are displayed for the user to choose, the entire list of elements are not displayed.
A single column that starts at the very top of the screen, and goes all the way down to the task bar is displayed, showing around 50 items.
There are no scrollbars and moving the mouse towards the bottom of the list does not scroll it down further.
What I would like to do is one of the following:
1) Add scrollbars to the list that is displayed and reduce it's height to something a bit more managable, similar to a dropdown list in excel that shows 10-15 items and has scrollbar on the side to access the rest of the items in the list.
2) Add a filter to the combobox where if the user types 1 or 2 characters (ie 'F' or 'FL') the the list of elements is filtered to show only those starting with 'F' or 'FL'.
3) Add an auto-suggest feature similar to that of a web-browser where if the user types in the part of the code, below the box the filtered list (similar to #2) is displayed (ie in the addressbar of a web browser, if you start to type in an address of a page already visited, it will auto-suggest possible pages that it has in cache.)
Any of these would be acceptable and greatly appreciated if someone can help me out.
