  • First, the definition for the AutoComplete behavior of the TextBox should not be in the Changed event handler.

    Second, you do not provide the GetProductName function, is it where the error is thrown?

    Third, where are your Try...Catch?

    As far as the code:

    -build up your AutoCompleteStringCollection in the Load for exemple:

     Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            'Load into MySource all the words for the AutoComplete
            Dim MySource As New AutoCompleteStringCollection()
            MySource.AddRange(New String() _
    "June","July","August","September","October", "November","December"
            ' Initialize the text box.
            With TextBox1
                .AutoCompleteCustomSource = MySource
                .AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend
                .AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource
                .Location = New Point(20, 20)
                .Width = (Me.ClientRectangle.Width - 40) \ 2
                .Visible = True
            End With
        End Sub
    and that's it you have autosuggest on the list provided.
