    Have a lost of potential entries. When the user types, after a few letters, filter the list down to options that match. LINQ's "Where" extension would be handy.

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. using System.Linq; // at the top
    3.  
    4. List<string> autocompleteEntries; // populate it
    5.  
    6. string input = // get it from the UI textbox
    7.  
    8. List<string> filteredEntries = autocompleteEntiries.Where(s => s.StartsWith(input)).ToList();
    9.  
    Now filteredEntries is a list that matches your current input for you to display.
