Good morning all,
Can you make a list lookup text field that works similar to the people control? Where you can enter text and it populates with the result that can then be selected? Like a search field of sorts?
Trying to make a field that, instead of using dropdown boxes to filter down to the item you're looking for, you can just scan a bar code into the field and it'll return the result to be selected.
Is this possible? Or am I out of luck?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm not sure I understand your requirements properly....
do you mean something like autocomplete options where you would type in/scan some substring and the field would provide you with list of options that match the input to select from?
something like this?
Hi again Marian!
Yes, that basically what I'm looking for, just one single line textbox pulling results in from a list, not another form field. I'm a bit confused as to what variables need to be named where in the example.
Lets say my single line textbox is named "searchField".
In the control CSS class, I've named it "AutocompleteControlClass".
Like how do I specify what column to search?
Nothing is happening when I type in it.
What am I newb-ing up now?
my code snippet there is pure adoption for controls within repeating section. it's not a working solution on its own.
read through the whole thread and you will learn that overall solution is based on SPServices library, and there is as well a link to a autocomplete solution for "simple" text control, including example how to read data from other list.
