The WinComboBox (which is the control under the ComboBoxEditor) does not provide the AutoComplete feature in and of itself.  However, you can use the AutoCompleteSource to provide a similar functionality.

e.g. :

AutoCompleteStringCollection coll = new AutoCompleteStringCollection();


new string[] { “Speedy Express”, “United Package”, “Federal Shipping” } );

box.TextBoxArea.AutoCompleteMode =


box.TextBoxArea.AutoCompleteSource =


box.TextBoxArea.AutoCompleteCustomSource = coll;


Then set the CellEditorManager on the Column with this WinComboBox.


gridControl1.Columns[ 0 ].CellEditorManager =

new CellEditorManager( box, “SelectedValue”, true, true );
