Gurus,

Issue:
User has to hit the ENTER key twice to have a formview update with the typed item within an ComboBox

Desired Results:
Once user types the name of the item list and hits ENTER, the formview should update with the updated information

Setup:
AJAX ComboBox
- Located within <form> section and outside of formview
- AutoCompleteMode="SuggestAppend"
- AutoPostback = "True"
- DropDownStyle = "DropDownList"

Current VB Code:
Private Sub ComboBox_Guest_KeyDown(ByVal KeyCode As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer)

        If KeyCode = 13 Then
            Call DatabindFormView()
        End If

End Sub

Try moving the keydown event to javascript and doing a postback if keycode is 13.
