Visual Basic 2005 AutoComplete Problem

Once you’ve populated a ComboBox with items and your AutoComplete –
SuggestAppend properties are enabled the following is a problem. When you
select an item where a duplicate item exists and you move the focus away from
the control the first of the two items are automatically selected.

I.e. If I have a ComboBox with the items “John”, “James”, “James”, “Peter”
and I select the second “James” and I move the focus away from the ComboBox
the first “James” entry is automatically selected.

PS! This only occurs when the AutoComplete feature is used.

Do someone know how to fix this?

Ok, Visual Studio has C++, VB and J++ thrown in plus some extra bells and whistles (I already have some minimal experience) but are both IDE's essentially the same (including the same IDE support for creating forms, ADO.NET DataSets,...

But roughly five million of you decided to stick with VB6, mostly to maintain...

I've been all over the net with this question, I hope I've finally found a group where I can ask about Visual Basic 2005. I'm at uni and we're working with Visual Basic 2005. I have some books, - Programming Visual Basic by Balena (MS Press) and - Visual Basic 2005 by Willis (WROX), but they don't go into the forms design aspects and describing the various controls at all. What bookscan I get that will cover that?

Why do we have to contact MS for a problem that has been with this compiler from at least the beta of VS 20005. I am so sick and tired of the 30 - 40 clicks it takes to dismiss VS when there is a problem. Can they not just post the fix. I see no reason to contact MS since I have most likely sent about 1500 dumps to them and I would think this would get their attention.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
