I'm trying to replicate the functionality of the Microsoft Common Control ImageCombo using the Codejock Combobox control. Here are the requirements:

- list must show images and text (done)
- user can type text into textbox portion of the combobox that will autocomplete
- the combobox should display the image and text the user selected in the textbox portion

I am running into problems:

1. If I set .style = xtpComboDropDown, the user can type text in the control, but it does not autocomplete and the textbox shows markup instead of just the image and text

2. If I set .style = xtpComboDropDownList, the textbox displays the image and text, but the user can't type in the control for autocompletion. The list is long, so selecting via mouse is not practical.

Has anyone been successful with this? What combination of properties or markup will allow me to do this?

Any thoughts? I'm desperate to make this work. I've experimented with the markup but I can't produce a result that displays the image and text in the textbox (without markup) while also allowing autocomplete.
