    I did try andy's combo box but is there any way the same functionality can be
    added to your combo box ?
    On going through the code of andy's combo box, it appears that it needs
    some javascript functions. I couldnt find those functions. Also the code
    makes refernce to web.config file which is not there in the project.

  8. The javascript code is there, I've downloaded it and looked at it.
    Look harder.

    My control could be modified to provide the functionality you need, but it
    would require a good amount of elbow grease.

    Hi Steve,
    Thanx for the reply. Yes the js code is there in the .resx
    file but there is no web.config file.

    If u go thrrough the code there is a property RefrenceLibraryUrl which
    returns a string variable. This property uses the web.config file.

    I did find a java script function on the net

    In your control you add some java script code for the visibility. Now I
    think the "elbow grease" would be to add a javascript code to search the text
    in the listbox or do i have to use the items.findtext ?
    Am I on right track ?

    Thanx for your reply. I did found the code, it was in .resx file. But if you
    go thru the code there is a property which calls the configuration settings
    from web.config.

    I modified and added a datagrid to your code, but on load the grid lines of
    the datagrid are visible. How do I hide them ?
