Have you been in chats and tried to say hi to someone else in the room?

Avatar names on IMVU can be long and pretty complex! Its very common for all of us to misspell them or shorten them to something to make it easy.

Well that should not be an issue anymore! Download our latest pre-release 507.12 and test our new feature - Auto-complete.

Start typing a name and it will complete it with the appropriate avatar's name that is in the chat room with you.

Don't want to accept the suggested "auto-complete"? No problem. Simply type over the suggestion and continue on....

We look forward to your feedback about this improvement to your chat conversations.

Update: Account settings in the client (General section) has an option to turn Auto-complete feature off.

P.S. This was a project that came out of a late night "hack" session at IMVU.



Great! Thank you!

Perfect!!! Typing the first 4 letters go easily for the autocomplete

Although it's useful in a room where there are people you don't know, it's a little annoying when you shortcut people's names you do know, but like Facebook, if you put a space in, the autocomplete kicks off. You just have to remember to put in that space.

There are definitely situations where an auto-complete feature will be really helpful! Smile I would, though, like to see a similar feature when you're using the "invite a friend" (or whatever it's called, I'm not signed into the client right now Razz) dialog box to type in the name of someone you want to invite, similar to what happens when sending a message.

I personally will likely opt out of this feature for now (thank you for giving us that option!) just because I rarely see full usernames typed out in chats. From what I've seen, in most situations another name is used instead. Who wants to type out JulietCapulet when Julie or Juliet will work just as well? Razz

Love auto-complete.

However, i have nick names for some of my friends which are similar to their names.

i NEED an option to ONLY auto-complete when i press tab.

If i want autocomplete i will tab, as i would if i was programming.

Thanks.

Add this or i will never use this feature.
