Do you want it for the Listbox control or a DataWindow drop-down?

Hi Roland!

Maybe, but i don't want to show a simple datawindow with one column, i would want to show an pop-up datawindow for that the final user can to see one or more columns and the data of these will go filtering while the user is typing something into input box.

To have a dropdown DataWindow show multiple columns, change the "Width of DropDown%" property to something over 100. For example, 200 will make the dropdown twice as wide as the input column.

To have it automatically scroll down & autocomplete, you have to write some code. I don't have it in front of me right now but I can try do find it and post it here.
