NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Text input panes

A text-input-pane will do in-place completion if you pass either of these initargs:

:file-completion with value t or a pathname designator, or

:in-place-completion-function with value a suitable function designator

You can add a filter to the in-place window by passing the initarg :in-place-filter . Additionally you can control the functionality for file completion by passing :directories-only and :ignore-file-suffices . The keyword arguments :complete-do-action and :gesture-callbacks also interact with in-place completion.

The in-place completion can be invoked explicitly for a text-input-pane by calling text-input-pane-in-place-complete .

See the LispWorks CAPI Reference Manual for details.
