Am working on a project that has a text box and a list box. The list box has a list of all of the States.

What needs to happen is when the State name is typed into the text box, the State is highlighted in the list box.

Also, if "A" it selects "Alabama", if "Alas" then "Alaska" is selected, etc...

I know I can Use Sendmessage Api but i want to select in a list by 'like' Statement not 'begin with'!!!

Should also be able to highlight the text in the list box and have it appear in the text box.

the truth is that i want to have filter recordset in client side(In Application) not in server side (Database)

I hope could say what i mean

I suggest that you study up on the textchange event. I think that is what it was called in vb6, but I may be mistaken. I know it does exist in some form or another and that you will need to do some processing in there filter/select your list box value(s).

It appears you have tagged your question incorrectly. It looks like you are writing a web app in which case I'll ask whether you're using VB.Net with ASP.Net, or are you actually writing a vb6 application. I'm confused.
