Your question is so vague. What do you expect to see on a sub form?

I assume your search button should search comboboxes for a search value.

Where search value will be entered.

Are you comfortable in using APIs for example SendMessage API.

This API searches a combobox and finds closest match.

How would I allow the user to enter lower case letters. How could I do it so it doesn't matter what the user does, as long as the letters are right. CT, ct, Ct, cT should all be allowed, for example.

What if you centered the numbers in the boxes and labels?

Use following to make search case insensitive.

[PHP]Lcase(Trim(Comb obox1.text))[/PHP]

Good Luck.

A year or two back I needed a search script to scan thru HTML files on a client site. Usual sorta thing. A quick search turned up a neat script that provided great search results. It was fast, returned the hyperlinked page title, filename, and the body txt (30 preceding and following words) in context with the search word highlighted. Excellent.! See it working at: http://www.ipt.co.za Just search for "firearm"

In other words, I want the search term highlighted and shown in an excerpt of the context in which it appears. Any suggestions or pointers? This behavior is most often seen as part of a search engine. In my case, I want...

Hello and TIA for guidance. I am building a reusable search procedure (thanks go to Graham Thorpe for his example that set me on my way).

It selects the middle element in the array of sorted values, and compares it with the target value; that is the key we are searhing for in the array. If it islower than the target value then the search is made after that middle element and till the end of the array. If it is equal then the target value is found and the middle is returned. Otherwise, search is made from the...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention.
