    Does telerik have a textbox control that I can tie to a database table that will do the autocomplete based on what the users starts typing?

    Thank you

    Hello jerry,

    You can try using RadComboBox for this task. Check the demo below:

    Sam,


    Thank you for your reply. 

    I need it to be a text box for a web project i'm working on.  Doesn't the radtexbox have these features?

    No, RadTextBox does not have such functionality.
    But you can make the ComboBox look like a textbox if you remove the dropdown icon. This is configured with a property called ShowToggleImage I think.
