how to make google like search box in current list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to make  a google like search box in my current list  that whenever I type a letter,the items in my listbox will also change according to what letter or text I inputed in my search box or textbox,I have a code here that just bind the author.title and year property into the listbox and I don't know how to implement it to have a search box.

    by the way here's the code

    private void BindCurrentList()
        Word.Application App = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application;
        Word.Document doc = App.ActiveDocument;
        Word.Sources sour = doc.Bibliography.Sources;
        string[] strItems = new string[sour.Count];
        for (int i = 1; i <= sour.Count; i++)
            Word.Source ssour = sour[i];
            string tag = ssour.Tag; 
            strItems[i - 1] = ssour.Field["Author"] + "; " + ssour.Field["Title"] + " (" + ssour.Field["Year"] + ")";
            listBox1.DisplayMember = "Name";
            listBox1.ValueMember = "Tag";
            listBox1.Items.Add(new Test(strItems[i - 1], tag));

    Thank you

    God Bless us all
