aiWidthListBoxWidth of the suggestion list (expressed in pixels). By default, this width corresponds to the width of the input area.
aiAutomaticOpeningSets the automatic opening mode of the suggestion list:
  • True to open the list automatically,
  • False to not open the list automatically. in this case, the list can be opened with <Edit>.OpenAssistedInput.
By default, the list opens automatically.
aiNoCaseSets the case-sensitivity and accent-sensitivity options:
  • True to ignore both case and accents.
  • False to take case and accents into account.

  • If <Edit>.ConfigureAssistedInput 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 suggestion list does not open immediately. To do so:
    • the user must type a value that matches the first characters of one of the suggestions,
    • the <Edit>.OpenAssistedInput function must be called.
  • If the Edit control is linked to a data file:
    • only the default filter ("Starts with") is available.
    • the bound item in the data source must be key (faster iteration).
