Autocomplete is a way to quickly turn a partial letter into a full word. For example if you were to type the letter
look mer and hit tab, it might fill the completion text in as
look merchant rather than needing to fully type out merchant.
MUD Client allows autocomplete keywords to be added via the scripting engine. An example of this could be an alias to the command
inventory, or by a trigger that matches
To have words added to the autocomplete list, you must call the
processForAutocomplete method with either an array of words or a string containing one or more words to be added. For example, you could have a login script with either of the following:
A larger example based on a trigger would be as follows:
In this example a regular expression is used to match from `You see:` until > (the cursor input for this mud). Everything inbetween is added for autocomplete.
