Title

AUTO COMPLETE FIELD

Post

HELLO EVERYONE,

 

IM NEW TO FMP AND WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP.

 

I HAVE A TEXT FIELD ON A TABLE WHERE THE USER TYPES IN THE NAME OF A PRODUCT (NAME OF MOVIE) AND POSSIBLE OPTIONS APPEAR AS THE USER IS TYPING.

 

EXAMPLE:

AS THE USER TYPES:  P R I

POSSIBLE OPTIONS WOULD DISPLAY: PRIMER, PRINCESS DIARIES, PRINCE OF TIDES, etc.

 

THEN THE USER CAN SELECT THE OPTION OR JUST KEEP TYPING THE NAME OF THE MOVIE IF ITS NOT ALREADY THERE.

 

I KNOW THERE IS AN OPTION FOR AUTOCOMPLETE USING PREVIOUSLY ENTERED VALUES AND WHAT IM LOOKING FOR IS SIMILAR BUT INSTEAD OF PREVIOUSLY ENTERED VALUES I NEED VALUES FROM A RELATED TABLE, AND WOULD LIKE THE OPTIONS TO APPEAR IN SOMETHING LIKE A DROPDOWN LIKE WHEN YOU DO A SEARCH IN GOOGLE OR IN A BROWSER.

 

IM SURE THIS IS POSSIBLE BECAUSE IVE SEEN IT DONE JUST NOT SURE HOW.

 

ANYTHING POINTING ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION HELPS.

THANKS
