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.

Play around with it and then we can see how we might modify it to meet your needs. ;)
