Loading an autocomplete combobox with 20,000 names takes time. Need a better solution.

P: n/a
Dear All,

I need to fill a combo box or a test box with arround 20,000 names. It is
taking around 3 to 4 seconds to fill a combo box with a help of a dataset
and by setting the auto complete properties. This is too long a time.

The criteria is to allow the user the select one of the 20,000 names
quickly. Can anyone help me out in acheving this?

Thanks and Regads,

Hi Peri,

Who are you going to punish with that combobox filled with 20.000 names?

Do you really think that even with autocomplete it can find direct the right
name. In my country there are lot of names which are endless used like
Jansen, Smid (and in that even endless versions as Janssen, Jansens, Smit,
Smidt, etc)?

I also wonder a solution to get about adding all "AutoCompleteSource"
to my combobox on form_load or when DropDown event is fired. I don't
want to see the AutoCompleteSource.AllURL or Recent list while typing
letters in combobox.
