Share this:


Enables add-ons to setup custom autocomplete suggestions for any editbox. This can be used as an Ace GUI Widget or on the base game's editbox objects.


You can control the list of values from which autocomplete suggestions are pulled and the maximum number of suggestions to present at a time.



With Ace GUI:

local valueList = {"Suggestion 1", "Suggestion 2","Another Suggestion","One More Suggestion"};
local maxButtonCount = 20;

local text = AceGUI:Create('EditBox-AutoComplete');

Without Ace GUI:

local editbox = ...;
local valueList = {"Suggestion 1", "Suggestion 2","Another Suggestion","One More Suggestion"};
local maxButtonCount = 20;

SetupAutoComplete( editbox, valueList, maxButtonCount );



To setup this library for use in your addons:

  • Copy the files listed below into your add-on's directory
    • Lib-EditBox-AutoComplete.lua
    • Lib-EditBox-AutoComplete.xml
