  • Hi Kahn_,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN Forum.

    Based on my knowledge, RibbonComboBox does not have such AutoComplete functionality and you cannot simulate "smallarrow clicked" behavior as well. You can only make use of TextChanged event when you type something in the combobox.

    Other property/method/event can be seem on

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi,

    In Word 2013, the fonts combo box in the ribbon has an autocompletion feature. If I enter "Cou", "Courier New" will appear.

    Does this mean Word use the TextChanged event to populate the text ?

  • Hello Laurent,

    First of all, I'd recommend creating a new thread for separate questions. Thus, other forum readers may easily recognize questions and answers in the single thread.  

    No, it doesn't. Not all features of Ribbon UI are available for developers for their custom UI.
