    Is there a simple way to disable and hide the dropdown button? I'd really only like to use the autocomplete functionality and not have a displayable list of contents.

    Hi Andrew,

    In order to achieve that you will have to edit the template of the ComboBox. Just drop a ComboBox control in the design surface of Expression Blend, right-click it and choose from the menu Edit Template -> Edit a Copy. Then, Blend will generate all the needed resources and templates for the ComboBox. Find the ContentControl with x:Name="DropDownIcon" and Template="{StaticResource ArrowTemplateEditableCombobox}". This is the control which represents the dropDown button in editable mode. You can remove it and use only the TextBox of the ComboBox.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,
