    Auto-Entering Text in a Layout Field Text Box



      Auto-Entering Text in a Layout Field Text Box


      Hi everyone.  I'm using FM 10 and have created a very simple flat-file database for my movie collection.


      I'm still in the process of working on the database, so please consider what I have done right now to be a rough draft. 


      There are only four fields in my layout:







      The last two are radio button sets, which are based on value lists I created.


      I also created a NEW RECORD button. 


      My question has to do with the Director field, though.  The Title and Director fields are default text boxes that were automatically created.  I haven't modified them, other than elongating them and changing the fill color and borders.


      I want the Director text box to auto-fill text when I begin typing a letter or two.


      For example:   Let's say I have a record for Raging Bull, by Scorsese.  I've typed Scorsese in the Director field box.


      Now, I want to enter a record for the movie Taxi Driver.  When I go into the Director field text box, if I type just Sc, since there is now a record for Scorsese, how do I get the name Scorsese to appear just by typing the first two letters?



      Thank you!
