"Quick Add" Screen

My boss wants a "Quick Add" Screen to create a new Sales Prospect record.  

Basically, he want to be able to start to type, say a Company Name, into a single-line field and have the field actively look up records in the Company table as he types each character and fill the field with the first Company Name that matches -- very similar to a Browse list, but from a single field on the "Quick Add" screen.  If the name is not found, a new Company record is created.  

I think he really like the new Google feature where it starts to display common search phrases as you type so he wants to be able to do that here.  Is that even possible with Clarion 5 without having to write a ton of Embed code?

RE: "Quick Add" Screen


Drop down Combo boxes have Auto Complete options. Other than that, there are 3rd party products like http://www.ingasoftplus.com/id64.htm (Easy Auto Entry), etc.


RE: "Quick Add" Screen

Yes, I think that will work for him.  Thanks again, ShankarJ!
