  • Hello,
    is there someone that has implemented ShellAutoComplete on an SLE using own string values, and is willing to share it.
    I have only found C++-Code like this here:
    www.codeproject.com/Articles/2371/IAutoC...String-implementatio
    And sincerely, I have no idea how move that to the the VO GUI classes....

  • Wolfgang,

    My customer in Germany had something like that in the VO code.
    I'll send you the address details of one of them. They may still have the original VO code that did that.
    If I remember correctly it used an external DLL based on that example code.

  • Hello Stefano,

    I sent you a mail to an address I used years ago. Probably you are not attending that anymore.

    If you are still interested, please mail me or let me know how I can reach you.

  • When we started to make the first prototypes I tried a little bit with these functions and decided not to use them.
    The main reason was that it is difficult to make different selections for every different type of input, for example separated by orders, offers, ..
    Now we have introduced something self-written. A listbox control is filled with previous values and displayed below the single line edit when it receives the focus. It was quite a lot of work and much code to insert, but it satisfies now all wishes. (The wishes grew immediately. For example inactive articles should be displayed in a different color, order numbers should be proposed for the correct order register, year. It is possible to mark entries as favorites that do not vanish anymore, the descriptions of the entries may be corrected when displaying them in the listbox,...).

    Our solution is based on a (modified) set of the VO GUI-Classes and many classes on top of these.
    If anyone is interested in code I can share it, but it needs time to study and implement it. Please contact me directly:

    Arne

  • Hi Dick,

    I would be interested too. I tried to implement something a couple of years ago but with no luck.

    Cheers

  • Hello Glen, Stefano,

    Check your mail. I sent a description with picture of 2 different autocomplete implementations we use. If any of these is what you mean I'll send you my code. Please let me know what you are after.

  • Hi Dick,

    thanks for sending in email the examples.
    What I need is a SLE with a combobox (filled with value from DB) that open up when I start typing. Once I have made selection the combobox close itself.

    I've attached a picture of what I would like to have.

    Ciao
    Stefano
