I've created a generic list (a collection) and made it the dataSource for my combobox.  
Now I need to use autocompletion for when the user begins to type in the combobox while searching for something in the list.  There seems to be a good amount of help on the web for autocompletion where the combobox has a different kind of datasource (ie. datatable) but I'm still scratching my head trying to get this to work with a generic list.
