    I have a normal Win vs2005 VB based combobox that is working which i need to convert to using a RadComboBox.

    Because the data set is quite large (20,000) items it does not seem practical to load all items at once.

    I understand how to implement autocomplete on its own and also how to load a subset of the SQL data based on the string entered into the combobox inout area. (in VB)

    Please can you give some idea how to hook the filtered SQL data to the autocomplete function of the combobox. (I use keyup in my non Rad ver)

    Hi Howard Rybko,

    Maybe you could use again the key events of the RadComboBox or TextChanging event to invoke your custom logic. But it will be better if you send us an example project of your working scenario with the standard MS combobox. We will examine it and will find the most proper solution for this case.
