    has an article on customization of the Silverlight AutoCompleteBox to be used as a type-ahead ComboBox in LOB applications.

    The AutoCompleteComboBox can be used in typical Object-to-Object associations (one that we typically encounter when creating associations in Entity Framework) as well as Foreign Key associations (the new association type introduced with Entity Framework 4).

    In this article Malcolm Sheridan demonstrates how to use the AutoCompleteBox control in conjunction with RIA Services.

    One of the controls available is the AutoCompleteBox. This represents a control that provides a text box for user input and a drop-down that contains possible matches based on the input in the text box. When this is used in conjunction with RIA Services, you have a complex solution with minimum code.

    A while back Lee posted a sample that extends AutoCompleteBox which worked in Silverlight 2. Now he upgrades this sample to Silverlight 3.

    I did not add/remove anything functional. just fixed the errors that are caused by the changes in base class(AutoCompleteBox).

    You can try a sample here and download the code here.

    Now that Silverlight 3 has shipped, Jeff Wilcox would like to take a moment to revisit the highlighting AutoCompleteBox control that he blogged about back in November of ‘08.

    This short post re-creates the HighlightingTextBlock control, using the Templated Silverlight Control item template that ships in the Silverlight Tools. When I last blogged about the highlighting text block control, I had to describe in detail how to go about creating a library, creating the default control styles file (Generic.xaml), setting properties, and putting it all together.

    Using the same steps and control template XAML from this post, you can create a Visual Basic implementation of the control alternatively.

    The purpose of this tutorial written by Matthias Shapiro is to show you how to get a Silverlight 3 AutoCompleteBox to show sample data using Expression Blend 3.

    So you’re playing around with Silverlight in Blend 3 and you set up some sample data. (If you don’t know how to do that, I’ll get to that in this tutorial too.) Your sample data is all set up and you’ve attached it to your AutoComplete box… but nothing happens. You get angry and throw your computer out a window (unless it’s a MacBook, in which case you apologize to it for flirting with Microsoft technologies and take it for a little cuddle), but you eventually think you want to try again and so you go looking for the problem on the internet. Hopefully that is what brought you here.

    Dan Wahlin has built a derived version of AutoCompleteBox that he calls AutoCompleteComboBox.

    Silverlight’s AutoCompleteBox control provides a nice way to filter a list of items as the user types into a TextBox.  If you haven’t used it before you can see an example here. In a previous post I showed how you could customize AutoCompleteBox to make it look and feel more like an editable ComboBox so that users can click a down arrow to see the list of items and also filter the items by typing into the TextBox.

  • Handling Events within Silverlight Control Templates – AutoCompleteBox Example

    0 comments  /  posted by  Silverlight Show  on  Jul 01, 2009 (more than a year ago)
    Dan Wahlin has posted a sample which modifies the standard AutoCompleteBox to look more like an editable ComboBox by defining a custom control template with a ToggleButton in it.

    One of the great features Silverlight offers is the ability to customize controls by using control templates.  If you don’t like how a particular control looks you can modify the template and in many cases be ready to use the new control without writing a single line of C# or VB code.  I’m working on a client application that uses the AutoCompleteBox found in the Silverlight Toolkit and needed a way to change it from a regular TextBox to more of an editable ComboBox.  Fortunately the Silverlight Toolkit samples (for Silverlight 2 and 3) already do something like this as you can see here (once on the page click on AutoCompleteBox to the left and then on the Styling tab at the top of the page to see the sample).

    Jeff Wilcox announces that thanks to the Silverlight 3 Beta, the AutoCompleteBox can become a highlighting auto complete control even easier. In another of his articles he explains how the AutoCompleteBox control received some data binding improvements and can now be found in the Silverlight 3 Beta SDK.
  • Extending AutoCompleteBox

    At Lee’s Corner there is an article about how to extend AutoCompleteBox.

    I like the AutoComplete feature for email addresses in hotmail, we get suggestions for any number of email addresses when we start typing. With AutoCompleteBox we get one. Here is my attempt to implement that feature extending AutoCompleteBox.
