AutoCompleteCustomSource Property Textbox in VB.Net.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the AutoCompleteCustomSource Property Textbox in VB.Net.

AutoCompleteCustomSource Property is a collection type property where you can store data from it and can easily be called from your textbox object. It serves as a suggestion or a guide of words where it depends on the user’s typed characters.

First, let’s create a Visual Basic project and drag a textbox object. Here’s the sample design:

Next, we go to the textbox property and modify its property for us to use the AutoCompleteCustomSource property.

Steps in Achieving the Tutorial

Follow these steps carefully:

  1. Set AutoCompleteMode to “Suggest” – this will let your textbox suggest words from the typed text of the user.
  2. Set AutoCompleteSource to “CustomSource” – this will let your textbox know where to get its auto complete source.
  3. Next, we are going to put string values to our AutoCompleteCustomSource. Let’s add this following values:
  1. Amber
  2. Ambulance
  3. Apple
  4. Archer
  5. Bash
  6. Bend
  7. Block
  8. Brick
  9. Bunker
  10. Call
  11. Cat
  12. Cherry
  13. Chunk

or you can refer to this sample image:

Let’s run our system. First, type letter A and see the results. Here’s my sample results:

Notice that when you typed letter A, the textbox automatically suggest string values based on your stored strings in the AutoCompleteCustomSource.

Now, erase the letter A and type letter B. Your expected results should be like this:
