Auto-fill combobox

Does anyone know how to get an auto-filling combobox on a form?

When I add a combobox to a form I can set the DropDownStyle property to
DropDownList. This will make the combobox auto-filling. But the user then
can't enter text in the combobox which isn't in the list.

So I have to set the DropDownStyle property to DropDown to enable the user
to enter text which isn't in the list. But unfortunately the combobox
doesn't auto-fill the text then with items that are in the list already.

How can I get auto-filling on this combobox?
