    Auto Complete - usually but not always!

    Asked by anemoi on October 19, 2010 at 10:09 AM

    I have installed the auto complete field in a number of forms and have found this the 'auto' feature - the linked list of possible entries - works in some cases but not others.

    I am trying to figure out the cause. The only real difference appears the be the width of the form.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated.

    Can you post the URLs of the pages where the auto-complete does not work properly?

    The form at www.rsfeva.org/grandprix included an auto complete field labelled 'Sailing club' which functions.

    I have recently started building www.rsyouthsailing.org on the same platform using the same field and 'auto' text which does not function.

    Similarly on www.rsyouthsailing.org I have created an auto complete field labelled 'School or University' with a list of schools and unis to support the 'auto' feature which also does not appear to function.

    I daresay there is a simple explanation.

    Many thanks for your prompt response to my query.
