_GUICtrlComboBox_AutoValidate

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

This script is an adaptation of _GUICtrlComboBox_AutoComplete by Gary Frost. The Combo Edit control will change colour if no exact match is found. The function supports cutting the last portion of the combo edit text without automatically replacing it (which is different to the original function by Gary) and returns a value to indicate what action has been taken if any. Pretty simple, but someone might find it useful. I tried to choose a useful subject for the example.

The example is included in the same script along with the function, so you can just run it at your leisure. Undoubtedly there are other ways to do this. Any suggestions for improvememnt would be welcome. Thanks!

Notes

Auto-complete only kicks in when a change occurs to the combo edit text. Auto complete does not occur after a cut opperation, or after pressing backspace or delete. The control's background colour turns red when the edit text is either incomplete or incorrect, otherwise the control's background will be white. Of course, you can change the error colour - $iErrorColor - to any value you like.

I have made one or two small improvements to the code for this function, and fixed an issue with undo (Ctrl+Z). This allows you to undo any changes without activating auto complete. Auto compltion only kicks in when you add something to the text in the control: so cut, backspace and undo will be ignored. I'm not saying this behaviour is better than default behaviour. I think it's a matter of personal preference to some degree. As long as the person using it feels comfortable with it, that's what matters at the end of the day IMO.

The colours in the example were taken from wikipedia. There are some funny names in there, many of which I never heard of before: Fuzzy Wuzzy, Wild blue yonder, Hooker's green, Cosmic latte, Tickle Me Pink :huh2:

Oops I introduced a new bug. It crashes when you hold down Ctrl+Z Sorry (I need to think about this) RESOLVED.

1. Removed the dependency on Misc.au3

2. Fixed a case sensitivity issue.

3. Added some notes for implementation.
