Use Inputfield to create search - Possible?

Recommended Posts


Hi there (and again ;) ),

i have a gui with an inputfield and an array containing the words that should be found (so it's some kind of searchindex).

my goal is to autofill the inputfield with a matching word from the "index" if three or more letters can be found (like launchy - http://www.launchy.net/ - ).

for comboboxes i know there is the function _guictrlcombo_autoupdate (don't know the exact name right now :) ).

so my both questions are:

- is it possible to use this _guictrlcombo.. for my aim, and

- is it possible at all to use an inputfield for my aim?

thx. for your adiveces.
