create my own intelisense

Hi,

i'm try to build my own intelisense to some part of our system. Does
anyone know where should i start from? or maybe can you refer me to a
good reference or a open source code which can help me to start writing
such control.

What i'm trying to so is to enable my users to have the same features
that we have in VS.NET on their own forms.

Many thanks.

You might try automatically displaying a context menu in the mouseover
event?

actually its a good idea, but the context menu doesn't support scrolling
which may cause to the UI to look really bad if i'm going to list all
the matching items...any ideas?

Well, how deep explanation do you need? From the UI point of view you
can do this: you catch whatever user types, when he prints "." you get
the word before this dot, analyse it somehow and if you have anything to
show, just use a listbox created dynamically and positioned at cursor.

something like that...

or you can see how it's done in ICSharpCode.TextEditor class of
SharpDevelop project - you can google'em.
