Dynamically Updating List
I have a field called "Unique Name". I would like to have a list of existing unique names (in a portal I would guess) that show's all of the existing names as the user types in their entry.
So if the user started by typing in a "B" the portal would show all existing entries that begin with a "B". And then if the user types in an "R" the list would narrow to all existing entries that begin in "BR", etc. This would tell the user that if the list vanishes, he has a unique name.
Any ideas would be greatly appriciated.
See this demo file: One of the portals at the bottom of the layout does that exactly. The others demo more sophisticated forms of partial text matching:
