    Hey everyone,

    Basically, my comboboxcelltype has autocompletemode setup on it. The functionality I would like, if for the combobox to dropdown as the user begins editing. So if a user types f, the combobox would drop down. I can't seem to get that to happen though. I am guessing it is a quick solution to implement and I look like a fool for having to ask. Thanks for your help.

    Dan -

    By default, the drop down will not display when using AutoComplete.  See if this post helps you out...

    That thread you posted was very helpful. Thank you very much. In the editmodeon event, I used the following piece of code:

    if(DefinitionGridView.ActiveCell.CellType.GetType() == typeof(ComboBoxCellType))

             ((FarPoint.Win.FpCombo)GridView.EditingControl).DroppedDown = true;
