turning off the suggested words

    In my app I'd like to kill the suggestion words that popup when I type in one of my fields. In some instances the popped up list (up to 3 words) can cover the control I'm entering into.

    Does anyone know how to kill this then restore it when the program ends?
    I'm assuming it's in the registry but I don't know where to look.

    regards, Ricky

    Hello Ricky,

    the registry entries for the word suggestion can be found here:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\SIP

    The entry you are looking for is the following:
    SuggWords = Number of Word/s to be suggested, set 0 to disable Word Suggestion


    Cheers

    Is there any way to turn word suggestion on and off at will?

    I have one form where I would not like the suggestions.

    Hello tsteward,

    as mentioned in post #1 you can set the registry entry SuggWords = 0 to switch it off and set it back to the "original" value if you leave the form.

    I must be doing it all wrong. Can someone please help.

    Here is my code(basically):
    Code:
    Sub App_Start
     registry.New1
     registry.RootKey(registry.rtCurrentUser)
    end sub

    Sub BacklinksForm_Show
     
    If cPPC Then
      registry.SetDWordValue(
    "ControlPanel\SIP\SuggWords","DWORD Value"0)
     
    End If
    End Sub

    The above code causes my program to crash. Can someone confirm for me if my codeing is incorrect or should it work and I have another problem?

    You should use:
    Code:
    registry.SetDWordValue("ControlPanel\SIP","SuggWords"0)
    Note that I see this key on a WM2003 device but not on a WM6 device.
    I think that just changing the registry will not be enough.

    Changing only this key works for me on a WM5 device. :)

    I do see this key on my HTC Diamond, a WM6.1 device. I don't know if it will work but I would guess that it would.

    Thanks Erel, that does fix my program error BUT it does not hide/remove the suggested words popup.

    If I edit the registry whilst the program is running it does not take effect. If I edit the registry then run the program I have no popup list.

    Guess I'll just have to put up with it. Not the end of the world I guess.
