    Auto Complete Widget: Search after hitting enter

    Asked by mreinan on September 29, 2016 at 02:49 PM

    I am using a widget for an autocomplete search.  Is there a way to have it search after someone clicks on one of the items? or after they click an item and when they hit enter.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. The Auto Complete widget will automatically run the search with every typed character.

    Thank you.

    Yes, but once you hit “Alaska” can it act as a submit?

    Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to do that without downloading the source code and some coding because you will have to change how autocomplete widget works and that's just not possible in Form Builder.

    Thank you!
