Familiar and convenient elements of the Microsoft IntelliSense technology ("AutoComplete") now are accessible in your Clarion applications! The EasyAutoEntry (EAE) class and template will allow your end users to enter the data simply and easily! Once entered the data will be saved and automatically offered in the convenient form in the necessary moment.
If you are familiar with Internet Explorer, and sometimes filled in forms on Web-pages or entered a URL you obviously understand what we are talking about :)
It's enough to simply add EasyAutoEntry (EAE) template into the application and all controls such as ENTRY, COMBO and SPIN (matching the given masks) will gain the magic "AutoComplete" property.
Support of EditInPlace (only for the ABC templates).
The template allows to carry out fine tuning of each field of each window and to group fields according to picture mask (in a mask you may use metasymbols "*" and "?")
For each field any of the four "AutoComplete" styles are accessible:
1. Suggested Part - Style in which expected continuation of a string automatically occurs as a selected part. It is possible to scroll variants (Up/Down or Shift+Up/Shift+Down).
2. PullDown List - Style in which all variants of expected continuation of a string occur in the pulldown list, you may go to this list (UpKey or a mousy) and to select the necessary variant. In the process of input, the number of variants reduces.
3. Combined - Combined style. If there is more than one variant of expected continuation of a string - the "PullDown List" style is applied. In the process of input, the number of variants reduces. As soon as there is only one variant left - the "Suggested Part" style is applied.
4. "Windows Shell" - style which allows to use standard Windows AutoComplete for URLs and File System. To type the files, paths and URLs in your applications it is very simple now. (the version 5.0 and greater of shlwapi.dll library (Internet Explorer) is required). You may use this style freely because of AutoComplete will just not work for users without shlwapi.dll library.
