ActiveX and Visual Basic: Enhance the Display of Long Text Strings in a Combobox or Listbox


The combobox and listbox controls in Visual Basic have no built-in support for displaying text strings that are too long to fit in the visible area of either control. This article describes several techniques to improve the readability of long strings in each control. The first technique uses tooltips to display a combobox or listbox item. The other techniques, which use various Windows APIs, include adding a horizontal scrollbar for a listbox and determining the necessary width of the longest string given the font attributes of the text. The required steps are described for both comboboxes and listboxes.

Autocomplete with multiple word suggestions, How can we do in Asp.Net with Ajax?


Hi All,

Could you please let me know the process to get multiple word suggesions for a text box in asp.net using Ajax.  

Actually I got a solution for that,


But it used Atlas. When I am running with this code in my application, it is conflicting with Script Manager that is already there in Masterpage.

How can I overcome that problem. Is there any built-in solution in latest versions of Ajax?


Thanks in Advance,

Sateesh Nagalla,

Visual Studio 2010 and Autocomplete Extender


The AutoComplete Extender control from the AJAX Control Toolkit does not work. It uses a webservice to retrieve data for the Autocomplete functionality.

The problem seems to be that the event to call the webservice does not fire

I just created a new website in VS 2010 and copied and pasted the AJAX Controltookit Example code for the Autocomplete extender. This works in VS 2008 but not VS 2010

Any ideas? suggestions? Some setting in VS 2010 that has to be tweeked.

Weird "string;#" in combobox


Ok, while I am digging and digging myself into the world that's called Sharepoint I come to the next challenge.


I have two lists Projects List and Project Issues. They both have an id field (which is not the ID field of the record) and a title. I created two calculated fields for both of the tables which combines the title and the number for displaying in other pages.



Projects List:

ProjectID: 2008-001

Project Name: First Project in 2008

Display Name (which is the calculated field): 2008-001 First Project in 2008


The calculated field formula is: =[ProjectID]&" "&[Project Name]

The field returns a string.


I also have a Worksheet list where my workers have to fill in their working hours. In this list I have two lookup fields. O

Autocomplete Colors



I have a question about the colors of the text in the drop down list of Autocomplete box. I'm trying to categorize them into 2 differents colors. For example, the autocomplete box will display the list of soft drink in the store and the color will identify them as "sold out" or "available".

The data in my database is seperated into 2 columns. The first one is the names of the soft drink, and the second columns identify them as "sold out" or "available.

The autocomplete box was implemented in my website using page method. There is a function in the code behind page, calling data from the web services.

Please let me know if there is any suggestion, guideline or any reference link to the answer of my problems.

Thank you.
