Curious if anyone has successfully extended the FileDropComboClass to allow sql LIKE matching as an alternative to the standard alphabetical search as entry occurs.
Does this technique work for you ?
It’s not exactly a SQL Like, but you could easily weaken it to be one.
This could be very useful once I get the basics of the ABFileDropComboClass extended.
While I might be missing something, one of the things I’ve long found limiting about the shipping class is ALL records meeting the filter conditions are retrieved. However, on a table with thousands of records, even after a single letter is entered, the number of records to retrieve is likely significantly less.
Extending the class to get records only after X# keys have been entered is my first priority.
Once the above is added, I’m guessing it will not be much more work to include a property to set the search type (alpha, like, contains etc). My experience is with POSIX expressions in PostgreSQL and I am sure they will be sufficient for me.
