I have a statement like "show name"

If i will type in dos prompt as bellow and press "TAB" key it should show full statement.

Example :

C:\manoja> show "press TAB Key"

it should show like

C:\manoja> show name

First, huh? And second, this sounds more like a Java question than Java News. So I am going to move this to the Java In General Beginner's forum...

I don't see the Java part of this question. Could you please rephrase as a question involving Java?

Question is :

How to write a java code which will do following.

When ever i will start typing in command prompt, after typing half of the word if i will press a key like <TAB> it should show complete word or sentence.

Example:

Suppose i have a statement "show your name". And i will do like bellow.

C:\DOS>show <press TAB KEY>

It should display "show your name" in command prompt itself as.

C:\DOS>show your name

This is not Java specific!
I am assume you're using windows because you mention the command prompt.
This functionality is only available in Windows XP if you are using anything earlier than that you have to make do with typing the doskey command and press the UP or DOWN arrows to access previously typed commands!

It's not only not Java-specific, it has nothing to do with Java at all, not unless you want to write a command shell in Java but I see no point in doing that.

I understand that nowhere it is related to java. But I was trying to know, can we do this in java. As Jeff Bosch told for that we have to write a command shell in java. Fact is no point writing command shell in java.

Thanks

Manoja Brahma:

Can we do this in Java? Are you asking if we can do this in Java when entering text through a console-based program? That seems to the only way that I make sense of the question. If so, the answer is no -- not with the system's console. You would have to write your own console that listens for the TAB key.

Barry Higgins:

Actually, on prior Windows systems, type "regedit", and go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\Completion Char" and set the value to 9, then you get tab-completion in pre-XP systems. (The earliest that I know it works is NT 4; I don't know about 95 or 98)

R S B:

Your name does not conform to Java Ranch naming policy You can keep the initials for the first name if you like, however, we would appreciate it if your last name was spelled out. You can change it here
