Are you asking if it is possible to have predictive text on Windows? As far as I know, it is not.

That's why it's two months old, DLZ. =P If you find something useful or important in old topics, then post in them. Otherwise, try not to revive old topics that everyone's forgotten about.

Taybay you are too severe. The young man is trying to learn wherever he can - and that is fair. By the way, that is an interesting question. Some progams do read directly from the keyboard. Think of "search" or I have a translation program that does so too. I type in a word in e.g. German and the English translation comes up - no ENTER required. Maybe 'cy1ht' wanted to use that for some application.

Oh alright. I didn't mean to offend anyone. In past forums I've frequented, a usual rule is to not revive dead threads, and two months is ancient. I just applied it to here, but perhaps the rules are different. =P

Taybay, that's quite alright. Your point is well taken. But back to the subject. It is quite fascinating how people discuss on the web how to read the keyboard buffer in C or C++ with scanf() or gets(). So, cy1ht may have wanted a real answer but we were not up to speed.

Hi taybay, thanks, that's why I recently posted "How long" (or something like that, it's so long now I've forgotten)
