.Net List control with search functionality RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I build a windows application using .net framework 4.0, i want to add a list control with multiple choices.

    i want to add search functionality to search value in the list and select them because the list should contain more than 300 entry.

    the checkbox list doesn't support this functionality

    Can you help me how tho implement this scenario.

    Thank you

  • Hi ProDevX,

    As per your requirement i guess you are looking control similar to autocomplete box or combobox with search feature.

    this is can be easily found in WPF application, i dont which desktop project you using.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Thank you all 

    i use ListBox with custom search functionality using a simple text box.

    the list view can resolve the problem too
