I created AutoComplete Textbox for a GridView. I have selected value from two columns from the database, one (Kontonummer) and the other is (Navn). Now if I select value from textbox, both value comes from both columns (Kontonummer and Navn) in the GridView Cell (Konto), But I only need the column (Kontonummer) value to get in the GridView Cell (Konto). Can you help me with that?

What I have tried:

private void dgvAddKontoNr_EditingControlShowing(object sender, DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
            string headerText = dgvAddKontoNr.Columns["Konto"].HeaderText;

            if (dgvAddKontoNr.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 3)
                if (headerText.Equals("Konto"))
                    if (e.Control is TextBox)
                        tb = e.Control as TextBox;
                        if (tb != null)
                            tb.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;
                            tb.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource;
                            AutoCompleteStringCollection coll = new AutoCompleteStringCollection();
                            tb.AutoCompleteCustomSource = coll;
                            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT CAST(Kontonummer AS nvarchar (255)) + ' - ' + Navn AS Kontonummer FROM Kontoplan WHERE LockKonto = 'True' AND KlientId = (SELECT Id FROM Klient WHERE Navn = @Navn)", con);
                            da.SelectCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Navn", bogf.cmbKlient.Text);
                            DataTable dt = new DataTable();

                            for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
                                string konto = dt.Rows[i]["Kontonummer"].ToString();
                                //string navn = dt.Rows[i]["Navn"].ToString();
                        tb.MinimumSize = new Size(345, 25);
                        tb.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D;

                    TextBox tb = e.Control as TextBox;

                    if (tb != null)
                        tb.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.None;
        catch (Exception ex)

No idea what you're talking about. Two of one; one of two ...

Hi Gerry.
Because the first column is code and the other is text, for each code has its text. But I only need the code in the Grideview.

You need to describe clearly:

1. where is the TextBox ... in the grid, outside the grid ?

2. what is the source of the autocomplete data

3. what "multiple columns means here.

Hi BillWoodruff.
1. The TextBox is for displaying autocomlete data from Database.
2. The source is tables from the Database
3. Multiple columns are the 2 tables selected from DB for the TextBox to in grid, where I only need the first table displayed in the grid.

Show the code that sets the AutoComplete data for the TextBox. Answer question #1 above.
