Text Completion?


#1

I swear I remember this being discussed, but the search function doesn't seem to find it...

I need to let the user enter text, and as they enter it, show them a list of viable choices from a list. I suppose it would be even better tolerate a typo or two...

So I guess it's a fairly standard sort, if my list is sorted alphabetically?

Any pointers? Standard approaches? Did I miss that it has been added to the lib already, say for the Code Editor (search did show Jules proposing it).

Nothing in the library to do it for you, but I guess it's just a case of floating a listbox below the textbox. I'm sure I've seen mention of other people doing it..
