Fast Type Ahead Portal Filter for Go/IOS

Hey Forum.

Can anyone recommend a tried and true type ahead portal filter that works fast with Go/IOS?


I've searched,gathered and tested many examples.  The biggest problem has to do with portal filters and refreshing. It's slow, there's flashing, and of course the keyboard disappears/reappears.  Even with a separate keyboard for iPad, still get a small toolbar at the bottom.  Rather annoying in this day and age, right?

I've looked over and tried dozens over the years, but not had the success I had hoped.


The best I've come up with is a long-standing example first published by NightWing Enterprises made back for FM 10:

NightWing Enterprises - X4X - Type-Ahead System Demo for FileMaker Pro

Filters by relationship, about as fast as I can type with 10000 records in the sample file.


I was also looking into the fine example from Jeremy Brown regarding JavaScript and his blog posted here:

FileMaker Integration: Using JavaSscript without knowing JavaScript

I like this too, but this will take a little time for me to learn/adopt/implement.


Was just wondering if anyone had any other examples that they know work fast on Go.
