Is there a limit for number of Auto Complete widget items?

    A question and two related UX suggestions:


    How many options can I offer in the field called "US school starting with A-M" on this form:


    It would be very helpful if the widget told us the number, so we did not have to write, ask, and wait for a reply.


    It would be very helpful if EVERY tool and widget told us the name of the tool or widget at the top of the right-side panel. For instance, there is no way to know the name of this widget, which we used on one site, so it took some real time to figure it out so we could use it on another site. The top of the panel says "Question Properties," but that is not the name of the widget.

    Thank you!

    The Auto Complete widget similarly to Dropdown fields is limited to around 65,535 characters due to a database limit. So the number of allowed options depends on the length of those options.

    Your other questions have been moved into separate threads:

    They will be updated shortly.
