LookUpEditBase.AutoComplete Property

Gets or sets whether the automatic completion is enabled. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Editors

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Core


public bool AutoComplete { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to enable automatic completion; otherwise, false.


If the AutoComplete property is set to true, the text typed by an end-user within the edit box is automatically completed, if it matches a value displayed within the dropdown. By default, the AutoComplete option is disabled for ComboBoxEdit, and enabled for LookUpEdit.

The Auto-Complete feature is not supported if the combobox editor’s popup window is represented by a check box list (the ComboBox’s BaseEdit.StyleSettings is set to CheckedComboBoxStyleSettings).

The LookUpEditBase.IsCaseSensitiveSearch property specifies whether the editor should distinguish between upper and lower case characters while looking for the matching item.
