Textbox property to select Appended text

P: 3
I use Autocomplete SuggestAppend in relation to a textbox.

Assuming my textbox shows numbers and the dropdown list contains for example

If I type "1" I will see in the textbox "12312" with "2312" appended and the dropdown list showing the options. I can use textbox.Text to get the "1" which I typed.

How can I get the entire textbox value ie "12312" (the "1" and the appended "2312")?

not sure what you are attempting to do but could you test the keypress and depending on the key write the required string to the TextBox, e.g.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     Private Sub TextBox1_KeyPress(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.KeyPress
  2.         If e.KeyChar = "1"c Then
  3.             TextBox1.AppendText("12345")
  4.         End If
  5.         e.Handled = True
  6.     End Sub
when 1 is kit 12345 is writen to the TextBox
