1) Is there a way to force input in uppercase?
2) What if I need to replace some key press with other key press? For example if the user presses "D" key I want to insert some predefined character no matter what is current active input language. Where is the best place in code to hook this functionality in? (override method, event handling) I want this replace function to execute before anything else (before autocomplete occurs)

Hi,

What exactly do you mean by force the input? Could you please elaborate more on what are you expecting this behaviour to be. Initially, you can always implement validation to the ComboBox.
As for the key presses - you can use the TextInputStart event.

Hope this information helps.

Kind regards,

1. By "force the input" I mean, that no metter in which case user eneters text, I want it to be (not just appear) in uppercase, and as soon as user types it (not on lost focus).

2.Key presses: yes I can use TextInputStart to catch char press, but it's readonly solution, I can't change it to other Char, the only way to effect Text is using TEXT property and I'm sure setting it will messup AutoComplete, fire tons of cascading events, messup with binding, and call lot's of code I don't want to call.

Hi,

I am afraid that both cannot be achieved with the current implementation of the control. If we receive more clients' requests we will consider putting it in our development plans.
