Getting started

Start by identifying the fields for which you want to configure AutoComplete. You will need to know the components and properties that those fields are bound to.

When setting up AutoComplete, you do not work with specific fields in the user interface but with the underlying data structure. Each piece of data for which AutoComplete is configured is identified by a component moniker and a property name. AutoComplete will then be available for all controls that are bound to the specified property. In this way AutoComplete configurations are reusable across multiple controls in the user interface.

For example, suppose your detail page includes a Value field, which is bound to the DtlValue property of an agency business object called InforClient.AgencyDtl.Detail. To set up AutoComplete for this field you would specify the component moniker InforClient.AgencyDtl.Detail and the property DtlValue.
