    Hello, anyway to make Autocomplete widget only can enter preset data?

    Example, in the autocomplete I have some name preset, AAA, BBB, and CCC, so will not let enter with any other letters or word, only A, B and C. Limit user only can enter existing word.

    Unfortunately that widget doesn't have that feature. If you want we can submit a feature request to our developers. Please confirm that you want to proceed.

    Thank you.

    Of course, we hope Jotform can be better  day by day, and maybe not only tell me yes or no, if you know what I am asking, you can tell me others alternatives or solutions to achive what I asking, because your are the expert, maybe I am the wrong direction.

    We can forward the thread to our backend team as a feature request. However, please note that we cannot promise that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide any ETA at this moment. You may also consider downloading the source code of the form and write some code to achieve your requirement. If you are not a programmer, you may consider hiring one from Upwork or Freelancer websites.

    Thanks!

    As i research the forum on the requirement, I found this thread that might help you in achieving your requirement. The workaorund provided by our colleague is to hide the Submit button if the autocomplete widget doesn't match one of the items from the list. Please see if that works for you.

    Thanks!
