auto searching technique

There is a way you can do the same thing on keydown, rather than keyup,
to make it appear a bit more responsive:

Local lastkeys

On Keydown k
  Send "Checkme k" to me in 0 seconds
Pass keydown

On checkme K
  put k after lastkeys
  put the long name of field "fruits" into thelist
  set the hilitedline of thelist to (lineoffset(lastkeys&k, thelist) 
  send "clearme" to me in 3 seconds	
end checkme

on clearme
  put empty into lastkeys
end clearme

Hi Devin

here's a quicky off the top of my stackhead ;)

-- card script or a field script where you type
local lastkeys

on keyup k
  put k after lastkeys
  put the long name of field "fruits" into thelist
  set the hilitedline of thelist to (lineoffset(lastkeys&k, thelist) 
  send "clearme" to me in 3 seconds
end keyup

on clearme
  put empty into lastkeys
end clearme

cheers
