Icon KeyPressInterval Property

property KeyPressInterval: Integer

Specifies the interval, in milliseconds, that is used by the control to combine user keystrokes into a search value that is then used for performing a near search on the Items property. Effectively, this means that the user has KeyPressInterval milliseconds in which to hit a key in order for the keystroke to be included as part of a near search. The default value is 300 milliseconds.

For example, if the user hits the 'S', 'M', and 'I' keys within the KeyPressInterval property value, but hits the 'T' key outside of the KeyPressInterval property, then the control will perform a near search using the value 'SMI', followed by a near search using the value 'T'.
