    dropdown list with typeahead

    cortiel

      I am new to filemaker!

       

      Lets assume the following szenario:

      2 tables; anckor-> Notes,  buoy->contacts

      a notes screen which is linked to contacts shall a\have a dropdown lst to select a contact.

      I can make it work to show the contact name when the list opens. but if there are thousands of contacts i want to be able to type ahead.

      so when I type in 'COR' the list should now only have contacts whose name starts with the 3 letters I typed until i either see my record in the liist and click on it or i came to a single match

       

      I am using FMP15 (just got it on monday)

      the type-ahead checkbox in the inspector is grayed out

       

      can that not be done???

       

       

      Thanks
