Speed-search/auto-complete in Uniface?
Author: email@example.com (sochaz)
Hello, we have a form with some hierarchical data presented in a tree widget. We need to allow user to search for something. So we have an editbox with OnEdit allowed. On every change we want to show corresponding results - in a pop-up form. With autofocus it works fine, but the delay of OnEdit is too short and can't be changed :(. Most of the users are unable to type so fast.. so we need to allow user typing and we need to update results with every change (on every OnEdit). Problem is, that the popup window don't have a focus. We use InitialFocus=False (during newinstance) and it works fine. Well. Not really. In this case the popup form is not closed correctly. If focus is changed, menu is activated etc... Uniface keeps this pop-up form visible. Have anyone tried the similar? Have anyone solved the problem? I have tried to deleteinstance in LeaveField, but it solves only Leaving the field. If I put deleteinstance in FormLosesFocues and user enter the pop-up form, Uniface crashes. Zdeněk Socha
