hi,
i am retrieving the names from database by using combobox by a character by character search method as they do in search engines like google when u want to search anything in it by entering 2 to 4 characters u can get full related topics of same characters ..
but i used visual studio 2005 for the project when i does so the characters enter in the combobox will appear as many times
when i give the clear options it will move the cursor back to the beginning what to do now

>do in search engines like google when u want to search anything in it by entering 2 to 4 characters u can get full related topics of same characters

Use following properties of Combobox,

1. AutoCompleteCustomSource
2. AutoCompleteMode
3. AutoCompleteSource
