    AutoCompleteMode Property (GcTextBoxCellType)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets an option that controls how automatic completion works for the GcTextBox control.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    Public Property AutoCompleteMode As AutoCompleteMode
    'Usage
     
    Dim instance As GcTextBoxCellType
    Dim value As AutoCompleteMode
     
    instance.AutoCompleteMode = value
     
    value = instance.AutoCompleteMode
    public AutoCompleteMode AutoCompleteMode {get; set;}

    Property Value

    One of the GcTextBox.AutoCompleteMode values. The values are AutoAppend, AutoSuggest, AutoSuggestAppend, and None.
    The default is None.
    Remarks

    Use the GcTextBox.AutoCompleteCustomSource, AutoCompleteMode, and GcTextBox.AutoCompleteSource properties to create a GcTextBox that automatically completes input strings by comparing the prefix being entered to the prefixes of all strings in a maintained source. This is useful for GcTextBox controls in which URLs, addresses, file names, or commands are frequently entered.

    The use of the AutoCompleteCustomSource property is optional, but you must set the AutoCompleteSource property to CustomSource in order to use AutoCompleteCustomSource.

    You must use the AutoCompleteMode and AutoCompleteSource properties together.

    Example
    This example uses the AutoCompleteMode property.
    GrapeCity.Win.Spread.InputMan.CellType.GcTextBoxCellType inputcell1 = new GrapeCity.Win.Spread.InputMan.CellType.GcTextBoxCellType();
    inputcell1.AcceptsArrowKeys = FarPoint.Win.SuperEdit.AcceptsArrowKeys.AllArrows;            
    inputcell1.DisplayAlignment = GrapeCity.Win.Spread.InputMan.CellType.DisplayAlignment.Distributed;
    AutoCompleteStringCollection acsc = new AutoCompleteStringCollection();
    acsc.AddRange(new string[] { "One", "Two", "Three", "Four" });
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteCustomSource  = acsc;
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[1, 1].CellType = inputcell1;
    Dim inputcell1 As New GrapeCity.Win.Spread.InputMan.CellType.GcTextBoxCellType
    inputcell1.AcceptsArrowKeys = FarPoint.Win.SuperEdit.AcceptsArrowKeys.AllArrows
    inputcell1.DisplayAlignment = GrapeCity.Win.Spread.InputMan.CellType.DisplayAlignment.Distributed
    Dim acsc As New AutoCompleteStringCollection
    acsc.AddRange(New String() {"One", "Two", "Three", "Four"})
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteCustomSource = acsc
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest
    inputcell1.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource
    fpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(1, 1).CellType = inputcell1
