AutoCompleteBox for Windows Store apps

There is no AutoCompleteBox control that can be used when building Windows Store apps in C# and XAML so I decided to create one, because I needed it for a project. Currently it supports only String collections and the selected value must be accessed using code behind, but this will hopefully change.

The AutoCompleteBox uses WinRT XAML Toolkit to show the watermark and Reactive Extensions so the users does not need to press enter, the results will show after they stop typing for a second.

The project is hosted on my Bitbucket so you can check it out at, forks and code contributions are welcomed. Nuget package is available at

Installation using Nuget:

Install-Package AutoCompleteBoxWinRT

Nuget  WinRT
