I can add that to my autocombo then I'll put it up on the Libraries thread.
I haven't implemented the items functionality yet. I haven't needed yet. If you need it I'll look at it.
Also the font stuff isn't done too.
I'll create a ShowDropdown method that accepts true to show it and false to hide it.
How does that sound to you?
I wrote it in C# using VS2005
This version uses a normal combobox and a textbox.
I created one in VB 2 years ago before they made their own comboboxes autocomplete on the desktop and it used a textbox, button and a listbox.
The textbox is where the user types. The button shows/hides the listbox which has the actual values.
I'll create a version of the current one to use this way and then I certainly can offer a ShowDropdown method.
As I work 12-13 hours each day for 6 days a week I don't have much time so this could be 2 weeks away.
