AssistedInputAdd(EDT_Direction, "Right")
AssistedInputAdd(EDT_Direction, "Center")
// To disable the filter
AssistedInputConfigure(EDT_Direction, aiFilter, filterNone)
// Activate the "Contains" filter that will be applied to each stroke
// on the 3 values that were previously added
AssistedInputConfigure(EDT_Direction, aiFilter, filterContains)

<Parameter>: Integer constant
Parameter to modify:
aiDelayTimeout before triggering the completion. This timeout is expressed in milliseconds. By default, the timeout is set to 200 milliseconds.

This filter can correspond to one of the following values:
filterContains"Contains" filter.
filterDifferent"Is different from" filter.
filterDoesNotContain"Does not contain" filter.
filterDoesNotEndWith"Does not end with" filter.
filterDoesNotStartWith"Does not start with" filter.

filterStartsWith"Starts with" filter.
aiWidthListBoxWidth of the list of options (expressed in pixels). By default, this width corresponds to the width of the input area.
aiAutomaticOpeningConfigures the automatic opening for the list of options:
  • True to open the list automatically,
  • False not to open the list automatically. in this case, the list can be opened by AssistedInputOpen.
The list is automatically opened by default.
aiNoCaseTaking the case and the accented characters into account:
  • True to ignore the case and the accented characters.
  • False to take the case and the accented characters into account.
The case and the accented characters are ignored by default.
aiMinSizeNumber of characters in input before opening the list of options. By default, the list of choices is opened as soon as the first character is entered.
<Value>: Type corresponding to the value to modify
New value for the parameter.
  • If AssistedInputConfigure is called on a edit control, the option "Assisted input based on data binding" is automatically enabled on this control ("Details" tab of the control description window).
  • The list containing the choices is not opened immediately. To do so:
    • the user must type a value that matches the beginning of one of the suggestions in the list,
    • AssistedInputOpen must be called.
  • If the edit control is linked to a data file:
    • only the default filter ("Starts with" filter) is available.
    • the linked item must be key (faster iteration).
