SmartText
   
  SmartText is a powerful Visual FoxPro textbox class with the following functionality:
   
1) Auto complete: Completes text as you type it. When you type a letter the class looks up previous entries in the data table for possible matches and if found automatically completes the text . In the example below, the user typed "a" and the class matched that to a company in the table and highlighted the automatically filled part of the text. To turn this feature on, simply set the property cb_lSmartFill to .T.
   
 
   
2) Email support: You can set up this class for email address entry. Users can double click on this box to launch the default email client and start a new message. The email address in this box is automatically passed to the "To" part in the email message. To turn this feature on, simply set the property cb_nType of the class to 2.
   
3) Web support: You can use the SmartText class for http addresses. Users can double click on a box with a URL in it to launch their default web browser and automatically go to the URL. To turn this feature on, simply set the property cb_nType of the class to 1.
   
4) Phone support: You can also use the SmartText class for entering phone numbers. Once a phone number is entered, the user can double click on this box to dial the number with Windows Dialer (requires a modem). To turn this feature on, simply set the property cb_nType of the class to 3.
   
5) Name entry support: The SmartText class contains a property called cb_proper. When you set this property to .T. the class will format the entered text to proper capitalization. This is useful for helping users to get the correct capitalization while entering names, cities, etc.
