Autocomplete Edit from DB

Startbeitrag von Yogi Yang am 24.05.2013 04:40

I need to allow a user to either drop down a combo to select an Item or if the user types item name/code in Edit control the edit control should list all possible matches in a dropdown list like in this sample image below:

I searched WD docs but could not find info on any control with such features so I would like to know if it is possible to achieve something like this using standard WD controls.

It's a bit of a guess but I think this is a wd18 feature. So maybe upgrade and save yoursef some time

Yogi - a combo box control will let you link to a lookup table on a Form procedure... it will perform the "auto fill" for you also... what it won't give you is an easy means of adding a new lookup table entry / editing an existing lookup table entry (ala your last two entries of your mockup screen "create hdd"). I just bought WD18 (I use WD17 for now); I don't think the combo box had added functionality for WD18 (e.g. "on the fly" data entry)...

Hello Yogi

You could have a look at a popup window as it can lock itself to an xy position based on the calling control. If you need to use the popup window a few times for multiple controls then I imagine you could make it multi purpose by using planes. Because its a window you have lots more options than a single control, so you could show the list of items with a separate edit control to accept new entries.
