  • REST/XML Data Source and Autocomplete
    1 Posts | Last post April 14, 2018
    • Hello,
      It looks like your data sources for the autocomplete are all preloaded or use an Access Database.  How would one use a REST web service (returning either XML or JSON) to return autocomplete entries?
      Thank you,
  • Populating Text box from combo box selection

    • Hi 
      Im sorry your probably going to be tired of this question but its driving me spare. I would really appreciate a helping hand if you could spare me.
      I have been following your examples for some time now, and there is an error you helped me out with that I just cant seem to break through, I have been looking at your populate text boxes when a number is entered to a text box and the button is clicked, this works great, I then adapted it slightly and used a combo box, again works great, it loads the data using a a numeric value (Int32) what I would like to do is load the data using a word, please see my MSDN post : http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/5560299b-bf49-4fd4-8aa4-f280d31baaec/populate-textbox-from-combo-box-selecton-vb-visual-studio-2013?forum=winforms 
      for example if I enter Microsoft, Microsoft's address, phone number are displayed in text boxes, I would like to do this using your example but I seem to get errors when changing Int32 to string, or if I adapt the code it loads without errors but no data is populated. 
      please help!
