Autocomplete functionality

Recommended Posts


 Hi Guys,

Lets say i have a small list with 4 words like "friend,friendship,friendly,data" How can i make an "autocomplete" function so whenever i type "fr" it would suggest me "friend" and whenever i type 'friends' it would suggest me "friendship"? I hope i explained it correctly. There is something similar in MS WORD, but i plant to make something different.

Thank you Melba23. I tried to search but couldn't find it.

Who said that $MS doesn't have a sense of humor?


If you're a programmer and not familiar with intellisense, the chances are you've been hiding in a cave on a dialysis machine for the past 5 years.

My resources are limited. You must ask the right questions
