Text Replacement

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

i would like to write a small app for text replacement

like PhraseExpress.

For expample: I type "h#" and the app would directly replace this with "home"

Can maybe someone assist me?

Thanks

If you mean to do this in a particular edit control, for example, then you simply read the text from the control, parse it, and write it back in a loop.

If you mean to do this globally, then you are wandering into key-logger territory, and we don't want to go there on this forum.
