Hi all! I have a problem with autocompletion of a combobox..the combobox includes the names of employees.When I insert the first character the list whith the names which start by this letter doesn t appear any more.. :(
I don t know what happening.. i think that i changed something by mistake because when i had wrote it it was ok.. Please help! this is my code now:

' Declare SqlDataAdapter object.
Dim CrewDA As New SqlDataAdapter()
' Dim StreetNameDA As New SqlDataAdapter()

' Assign a new SqlCommand to the SelectCommand property
CrewDA.SelectCommand = New SqlCommand()

'Set the SelectCommand properties..
CrewDA.SelectCommand.Connection = conn
CrewDA.SelectCommand.CommandText = "SELECT Crew, ID FROM T_CREWS "

'Create the DataSet
Dim DS As New AMRtoSQLDataSet

conn.Open()
'Fill the dataset with data
CrewDA.Fill(DS, "CrewTable")
conn.Close()

'Fill the Crew name at combo box
cboCrew.DataSource = DS.Tables("CrewTable")
cboCrew.DisplayMember = "Crew"
cboCrew.ValueMember = "ID"
Me.cboCrew.SelectedValue = -1

'*********************AUTOCOMPLETION Combo box USER*************************************
Dim col As New AutoCompleteStringCollection ' From which our names will come

Dim i As Integer
For i = 0 To DS.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
col.Add(DS.Tables(0).Rows(i)(0).ToString())
Next

'this is the main part
cboCrew.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource
cboCrew.AutoCompleteCustomSource = col
cboCrew.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest

Change the auto complete mode for your combobox so it suggest and append

cboCrew.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend

I might be your custom source.
If you have your list populated before you can try getting the values from the listitem.

Private Sub Sample()
        cboCrew.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend
        cboCrew.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.ListItems
    End Sub

smerinas, you need to be more clear.
Explain little more, what you are trying to do and how you want to approach it.
