Default Actions Filter History with Auto Complete

Please consider updating the filter in Actions from Edit control to a Combo with history + auto-complete/suggest so we don't have to type same/similar words over and over. THANKS!

I recently made and use this until native solution arrives.

I think the licecap with your app (well done btw.) shows the benefit (speed up) pretty good.

I did a quick search for win32 Combo and it doesn't seem to have a suggest list built in, so devs would have to code that, found one C example on codeproject site and looks like a lot of work, in .Net I basically enable one property.

You know my whatsnew app, this basically uses same custom control, right click it for history options, Posted here if you care to try.

Of course I do.
I refrained from asking here about sharing to not derail, thanks.

A bit in the same train of thought, filtering actions and fx chains by added/created date would be usefull too when working with various installs.

I sometimes look for an action/macro that was created on another partition or portable install.

Being able to filter by date created or added would allow to export/import latest key command easily from one install to another.

And if you enter a number or text starting with an underscore character Actions searches the Command ID column for a match.

Added to my action history app while I wait!
