Set dropdown width of a textbox with AutoComplete in windows forms



I have used a Textbox control along with its AutoComplete feature by using AutoCompleteMode,AutoCompleteSource and AutoCompleteCustomSource properties.

Everything is working fine i.e. on typing letters dropdown list shows the related matching list of values.

However, I am not able to set the size of dropdown list programmatically.  I can increase the size(preferably width) of dropdown list at runtime.  But, as AutoCompleteCustomSource is getting reset everytime the textbox gets focused, dropdown list width also gets reset to the width of the textbox.

Just like the feature of Combo to set DropDownWidth programmatically (or say at design time), is there any way to set dropdown width for a Textbox having AutoComplete feature.

My Code for the reference (On Form Load event) :

        TextBox1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest

Dynamic Filling of TextBox AutoComplete not working


Hi guys,


i would like to fill the textbox autocomplete stringcollection "on the fly" while typing. i don't want to fill the collection while initializing, 'cause it's too much data: the sql server-table has about 100.000+ rows. the filling takes too much time and the "autocomplete-popup-find-something-box" itself is getting too slow, too.

my configuration:
.NET-Framework: 2.0.50727, System.Windows.Forms.TextBox

TextBox-Properties: AutoCompleteSource: CustomSource; AutoCompleteMode: Suggest

i tried several different things...

1. i did put this code in the "TextChanged"-event, but i think it's 'too late' there:

private void

How to make a textbox or a label in my own webpart connectable with webparts from sharepoint webpart

I'm developing a webpart which need to be able to receive data from standard webparts from sharepoint.
My webpart needs to get data from a sharepoint formfield in an editform from a list.
I know how to connect 2 standard sharepoint webparts with sharepoint designer. But I can't seem to figure out how to connect my own webpart with a webpart from sharepoint. All I can find on the internet are examples where you need to have your own provider and consumer, not just the consumer.
So basicly I need my webpart to be able to connect with sharepoint webparts, just one connection is enough.

I'm developing for sharepoint 2007 with visual studion 2008.

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.
