Perform Look-Ahead Typing

This subroutine lets the user perform look-ahead typing, as in Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and other apps. The sub takes an array of strings and a TextBox control as parameters. You can easily change the subroutine to accept a ListBox control instead of an array of strings. You can call this sub from the TextBox's KeyUp event:
Public Sub DoLookAhead(strArray() As String, ctlText _
	As TextBox)
	Dim strText As String
	Dim strLength As Integer
	Dim x As Integer

	strText = LCase$(ctlText.Text)
	strLength = Len(strText)

	If strLength > 0 Then
		For x = LBound(strArray) To UBound(strArray)
		If strText = LCase$(Left$(strArray(x), strLength)) _
			'we found something
			If Len(strArray(x)) > strLength Then
				ctlText.Text = ctlText.Text + _
					Mid$(strArray(x), strLength + 1)
				ctlText.SelStart = strLength
				ctlText.SelLength = Len(strArray(x)) - _
			End If
			Exit For
		End If
	End If
End Sub
