Combobox for historical entries


G

Guest

I am trying to implement a clone of the url combobox in IE. As you type a
string in the combobox it drops down and shows historical entries that were
previously entered that match the typed string. The only problem is that when
I set the DroppedDown property to true the Text that was being typed is wiped
out with the first entry in the drop down list. I tried setting the text
property with a saved version of the entered text after setting DroppedDown
to true, but that caused some kind of infinite loop in the combobox control.
How do I keep the value I was typing and show the matching values in the drop
down? Am I even using the correct approach/control?

Thanks,
Norman
