Ho to pass data from Form 1 to Form 2's Auto Complete widget?

    I've looked at the AutoComplete wizard and have yet to figure out how to set it up. The only auto complete widget I find is for a drop down. There is no Widget for a single text field or an address field. That said, In my situation, I have 2 forms; Form1 (Eastland Hills HOA Members) and Form2 (Address Lookup).  I need to have the Autocomplete field in Form2, lookup the name and address from Form1.  The AutoComplete field in Form2 would need to be linked to a corresponding field in Form1. But, if there's no Auto Complete widget, it becomes a moot point.

    I did find an Auto complete widget on line but it will not add to an existing form. Rather it opens a new form. That's not so cool. See URL Below. Obviously, something is wrong.

    Update: Search to Widget box: "Auto" ; "Auto Complete" ; "Autocomplete" . Since the search results vary considerably as well as the individual results vary considerably,  it appears that this search does not work properly. Additionally, in all three searched, it failed to turn up all the Autocomplete Widgets. The way it is now, raises the question, "I this is implemented on a form with several hundred entries, will the results be accurate or as faulty as this? It would be better to simply sort them in alphabetical order with an option to sort ascending or descending.



    Thank you,

    If you are looking for the address autocomplete then you may check out our GeoComplete widget.



    For the name you can use the Autocomplete widget:


    If I have correctly understood your question then do you mean to pass the name and address field from Form 1 to Form 2 and then search these fields with the autocomplete widgets configured in Form 2.

    May we know how you would like to search for the details passed from Form 1?

    Do you want to prepopulate some kind of details in some text boxes based on the data that you have got from Form 1?

    You may check the Spreadsheet to Form widget

    The Spreadsheet to Form widget allows you to upload your spreadsheet to your form and use the values you have on the spreadsheet to pre-populate your form. By using a unique code that is present on every row of your spreadsheet, you can access that specific row that matches the unique code.


    For the second concern, I have moved it to another thread to avoid confusion. We will address it shortly.
