Title: completion gesture in text-input-pane

ID: 17028


Product: LispWorks for Windows
Version: All
OS: All Windows platforms

Description:
capi:text-input-pane supports the :completion-function initarg.

On most platforms the Tab key invokes the completion function, but on MS Windows the completion function doesn't have a key binding because Tab is used instead to move the focus between the panes in a window.

A workaround is to add a completion button by passing the initargs

:buttons '(:completion t :ok nil)

to capi:text-input-pane.

For full details see the CAPI Reference Manual.

There are several examples in the LispWorks IDE of capi:text-input-pane with buttons added in this way, for instance the Class box of the Class Browser tool.
