Here's my take on an auto completer, work in progress so don't be too harsh with me.
The idea is that after a spacebar press, it learns the word that was previously written, and the next time you write, it gets a list of all words that fit into what you're writing, so if the user writes "com", a word that may appear is "complex", that is, if the user has written it anytime in the past.
A popup will show up whenever the user writes with the list of words, the way to select one of the words from the list is to scroll with the mouse wheel, and middle click. The popup timeout is 2.5 secs.
PS for the next step would be nice to save words as they are, for example emails, as it is it doesn't get @ for example.
Wanted to create an AutoComplete function like "Start » Run" functionality for both Urls and Files using SHAutoComplete function, Unfortunately my knowledge is quite limited and so put the following together based on existing functions and snippets online. While everything works fine, I'm not sure if I've written the function correctly and was hoping someone with more experience with WinAPI could look it over and let me know if I've missed anything.
Thanks in advance.

Hey everyone, I'm curious if there is a way to incorporate a checkbox with a combo GUICtrl?
so for instance I have a GUI that has a bunch of checkboxes that allow me to open certain programs as needed. (this is just some parsing of my code, sorry, noob here and not sure what the preferred method of displaying code is, please enlighten me)
$L0742 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 4.2", 110, 320, 100)
$L07502 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("L07 5.0.2", 110, 350, 100)
$GenComm = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("GenComm", 110, 380, 100)
$Templates = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Templates", 110, 410, 100)
$MCT = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("MCT", 110, 440, 100)
$Desktop_Shortcuts = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Desktop Shortcuts by Tester", 110, 470, 200)
Case $msg = $RunBtn
if GUICtrlRead($L0742) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel4.2\viva\viva.exe", "")
if GUICtrlRead($L07502) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("C:\Program Files\Varian\Paxscan\L07 Rel5\viva\viva.exe", "")
if GUICtrlRead($GenComm) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPShared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester\Matt\CPI Generator\CPI Generator Windows 7 64 Bit\GenComm\GenComm.NET.exe", "")
if GUICtrlRead($Templates) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Test_Templates")
if GUICtrlRead($MCT) = $GUI_CHECKED then Run("\\Fpanelfs1\FPProjects\Documentation Controlled\Manufacturing Software\MCT\MCT.exe","")
if GUICtrlRead($Desktop_Shortcuts) = $GUI_CHECKED then ShellExecute("\\Fpanelfs1\fpshared\Desktop_Shortcuts_by_Tester")
so i click some checkboxes, and hit a run button and the programs which are checked run, great.
BUT i want to add a bunch of options under one checkbox. A combo that will list a bunch of versions of a program that can be opened. something like this... but I want that program to be part of a checkbox
$ViVAComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("L01 Rel 13", 110, 320, 100)
GUICtrlSetData($ViVAComboBox, "L04|L05|L07 Rel 4.2|L07 Rel 5.0.2|L09", "L07 Rel 4.2")
is this possible? is there another GUICtrl that does this better that i am not aware of?
I created a little script we use at work for inputing date and time stamps into our ticket system.
Now I thought it would look nice in a Metro style GUI, I found an UDF on the forum what does almost everything I want.
I have but one thing I can't seem to find and don't have the skills to create.
The gui uses one pulldown menu (GUICtrlCreateCombo) it stays in the older looking style.
I attached the script and files I have, also in the zip you find an example of what I am looking for.
Hope you guys can help me
I'm trying to use GUICtrlCreateCombo but I need it to get the list values from an excel spreadsheet column - that makes it dynamic. My method is to prompt for the Module name (this gives me the application to run the automation test) this also gives me the name of the folder that stores all the spreadsheets.
1.I then get the list of spreadsheet names and use that as input for another list (this can be select 1 or many or all - don't know which control to use...)
2.On selection I then go to the spreadsheets selected and display columns C, E from TestController tab in a further combo box to select 1 or many or all.
3. keep doing point 2 above until all selected in 1 are complete. I'm wondering if I just display as many combo boxes as items selected in point 1 or loop thru them somehow.
Very complex for my little brain - any advice to simplify is greatly appreciated
