How to dynamically update data bound to a PathListBox as text is being entered into a text control? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using a database to populate a PathListBox control that is set up to display images and text using a carousel effect. Above the images is a text box where the user will perform searches. As the user keys in each character I want the data to be updated dynamically so that the results are filtered and displayed on the PathListBox carousel. The effect would be similar to Google's new dynamically changing search results that change as the user continues typing.

    Is this something that I need to implement from within Visual Studio or can I do it in Expression Blend? Also, any tips on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. I am thinking to use the text control's OnChanged event (or whatever it is called) to query the databse. Am I on the right track by thinking this way?
