Window Combo box

P: n/a
Hi,

I am using windows combobox to populate the data from database. My
requirement is - If user enters some characters matching the values in
dropdownbox, I want to point to that location in combobox.

I know we have findstring method, but it is searching from the beginning of
the string which I enter

Eg -
Values in dropdownbox are "1 Hi How are you"
if I enter "Hi" in combobox, I want to go the location where the "1 Hi How
are you" is there

Please help!

Thanks in Advance
