What does the OnObjectModify script do?
Because that's going to be performed every digit you enter.
The script behind the "OnObjectModify" trigger is currently disabled so does not do anything right now although the problem is still there, even without the script behind the trigger...
Well, I just did a little test and found the same problem.
Very strange indeed.
I'll see if I can come up with a solution.
Can't find a concrete solution. But this thread talks about similar things and has some files. Maybe have a look there:
I'm thinking maybe a number field with a portal that immediatly updates while typing. And then you click your selection in that portal.
Do you really need a dropdown list? If you are only displaying ID numbers I would assume you could just do with a simple field where you enter an ID and just find that ID.
I could do that but then I need to ask the user to click a button after entering the ID. Not sure if my client is happy with that extra mouse click. I know, it sounds stupid but I really thought I could do it with one single action using the drop down list...
Like I said in my last post, can you just use an edit box?
I don't know what the extra use of the dropdown is if you are only displaying the ID and no extra data from a second field.
P.S. I just tried adding a prefix to the ID. I added an "A" and that does seem to work.
I don't know if that's an option?
