6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,
try to use _GUICtrlComboBox_AutoComplete, but Help example completes name if find exact word.

Is there any way to implement suggestions, and filtering, while user write only part of word ?
eg: type word 'ja', FIND and suggest, 'java' AND 'Pijama'

thank you for any help,
m.

good scripts..., however they do not solve what OP asked in the first post, that is the finding of words from the list, that contain the portion of what you are typing even if it appears in the middle of the words and not only the words that begins with that part.
It seems that scripts in your link finds only words that begins with what you are typing instead.
Of course those are, however, very nice scripts!
