Large Dropdown List on FM Go

I've got a largish drop down list (250+ possible choices) which works fine in FM on the Mac, in that once the user drops the list down, they can use the keyboard to perform an incremental search to quickly get to the correct record.

In FM Go, it appears that you have to scroll down the records to get this to the desired record, there is no way to accellerate the process; either by moving the scroll bar manually or typing in a few letters to move through the list.

Am I missing something here, and if not... is there a possible scripting solution that would allow this to happen?

 

Update: I posted this on the regular FM forum and received a possible solution, essentially to perform a query to get a subset of the 250 choices, and then use those results in the dropdown.

Still not sure if this is the right approach...

Many thanks. ---- L
