I want to make an autocomplete box to appear when I start typing on a specific text field.

This text field can be any Windows app or Unix terminal. I need to position the autocomplete box just below the text input box and I need to be able to identify the text input box both by its GUI ID but also by its visual appearance and pixels (because there are some text input boxes in Terminal GUIs that are not separately identifiable with a separate GUI ID.

I also need to specify the autocomplete suggestions/database for different text input boxes.

In other way, I want autocomplete functionality in Windows applications that do not have it.

Is there any robust outofthebox solution for this?
