Autocomplete entry-field like Google

Hello,


I would like to be able to use a TextBox/Entry-Field with autocomplete like Google.

So when you start typing a list box appears with suggestions.

Does anyone know how to get this done. I tried using .NET but cannot get it to work

Andre,

  • There is a discussion in the forum on this .. using .Net I believe ... community.microfocus.com/.../6863.aspx

  • You may be interested in ths as well ... community.microfocus.com/.../307.aspx

  • Yes I have seen all the posts about this subject but I want the .NET solution where I can use

    Autocomplete CustomSource and I can't seem to translate this to cobol.

    The options are AllSystemSources, AllUrl, FileSystem, HistoryList, RecentlyUsedList, CustomSource

    With CustomSource I want the listbox to be filled with data from my vision files.

     

    Help please

  • THIS IS WHAT I WANT

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    {

       // Create the list to use as the custom source.  

       var source = new AutoCompleteStringCollection();

       source.AddRange(new string[]

                       {

                           "January",

                           "February",

                           "March",

                           "April",

                           "May",

                           "June",

                           "July",

                           "August",

                           "September",

                           "October",

                           "November",

                           "December"

                       });

       // Create and initialize the text box.

       var textBox = new TextBox

                     {

                         AutoCompleteCustomSource = source,

                         AutoCompleteMode =

                             AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend,

                         AutoCompleteSource =

                             AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource,

                         Location = new Point(20, 20),

                         Width = ClientRectangle.Width - 40,

                         Visible = true

                     };

       // Add the text box to the form.

       Controls.Add(textBox);

  • I saw this C# code as well and the VB code on the Internet as well. For whatever reason I cannot find a Framework 4.0 Listbox or Textbox when using NetDefGen. The process would be to use our utility NetDefGen and create a copybook that contains the methods and properties from a Framework 4.0 Listbox or Textbox. In COBOL you would use CREATE to create the control and then use Modify and or Inquire on the appropriate properties and methods

  • I have created the copybook using NetDefGen, thats not the problem.

    My problem is translating the above to cobol.

    Or if there is another way to incorporate the Auto-complete function in my programs I would like to know how.

  • CAN ANYBODY HELP ME WITH THIS??????????????????????????????????????
