Active Directory Incremental Search

I would like to build a textbox that will support incremental search of an Active Directory and return a list of "partial" matches.

I could trap the keypress event or the like and reissue the AD query to obtain 1 or more partial matches.

dsquery does a pretty good job of that already.

Example:
dsquery user -name wayne*

I think that dsquery is a commandline utility.  I am looking for a C# .NET solution.

The clue to that is that the zones are .NET, C# and Active Directory...

here are few ways to query AD, you can always wrap it according to your needs.
You might issue queries on submit button or on every textchanged event of textbox:-
