Limit To List feature for Combo Box

P: n/a
Hi,

I've been using MS Access to devleop applications for long time, I like a
feature called "Limit To List" when setting combo box in design time (accept
text only when matches one of the listed choices).

Does anyone know a simple way to implement this feature on Windows form for
..Net developement? I've been searching this topic on lots of different
technical resource, but I still can't it. I'm very appreciate anyone can
give me a hand on this.

I'm not familiar with MS Access forms, but I think you're looking for a
DropDownStyle of DropDownList.

This will prevent the user from typing text into the combobox control.

Hi Rabbit,

I did a search on Google for "Limit To List" and there were plenty of
matches. Unfortunately too many for me to investigate on your behalf, but a
quick glance showed that others have the same question and some have
solutions.

You can also try searching Google Groups (use the Groups 'button' in the
row under the Google logo).

Keep "Limit To List" in quotes so that you get relevant matches.

Good hunting. :-)

Regards,
Fergus

Yes, I know.

And it will "limit to list" too. :)
