    Using large list of options for autocomplete boxes in source code - how to set several views to same values?

    Asked by dalepotter_upreach on January 30, 2014 at 06:20 AM

    Hello,

    I have a form with 4 autocomplete fields, each of whcih requires an identical set of 6,000 options - yes that's a lot!

    As jotform seems to struggle with that many options (even for one field), we have downloaded the source code for our form and are hosting it on our website.  I have added in the full list of 6,000 options in the javascript code near the top of the page.

    How could I set multiple fields to have the same options list, and thus only output the options once to the page.  Doing so will dramatically reduce page load time and bandwidth.

    The variables in the JS seem to be 

    JotForm.autoCompletes['input_270']

    JotForm.autoCompletes['input_271']

    JotForm.autoCompletes['input_272']

    JotForm.autoCompletes['input_273']

    Many thanks in advance for any help that you can give...
