A Combobox assigned autocomplete feature in it,
set AutoCompleteMode to suggestappend, and AutoCompleteSource to List items.

i have written a code block in the keypress event of the combobox,like when enter key is pressed, do some action.

the keypress event doesn't fires. for enter key.

Without autocomplete feature assigned, the keypress event fires.

the basic trouble i am losing my enter key sequence for my code.

i.e., instead of tab key to move to next field, using enter key to move to next field.
give idea to rectify this error

How can we suggest unless we know what code you have written?

To start with, you should tell use the exact type of your ComboBox control -- there are more then one under this simple name. At least give us a fully-qualified name (with namespace).

And yes, try to make a code sample to reproduce the problem.

Use the KeyDown event

Private Sub ComboBox1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.KeyDown
    If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
        ' if you want to simulate a tab,
    End If
End Sub
