    Hi,

    I'm just new in winform so I'm just wondering if a lookup column can have text search. Like for instance I'm to select a defined data on my dorpdown column but since it has lots of data, its hard to scroll down, so what I want is to just simply type in what text i'm searching for and will populate the dropdown based on my typed text, which is available on my datasource. Its like Google search, once you type text it will generate values on a dropdown. Any info or sample would be much appreciated.


    Thanks in advance,
    RJ

    Hello RJ,

    So just to understand this better, what you are searching for is to use something like AutoComplete, to change the data displayed per user keystroke, instead of binding to the entire set?
