Suggestion - AutoComplete on lookup (SP2013)

Oct 10, 2014 at 1:12 PM
In previus version of sharepoint, when you had lookup with more than 20 element it allows user to input value (with autosuggest).
Now in sharepoint 2013, they disabled it.

I was looking on yours SPAutocomplete function for singe line of text. I think it would be great if it will be working also on dropdowns/lookups?

Would you consider extending SPAutocomplete function, to work with dropdowns/lookups ?

Interesting suggestion. The autosuggest functionality in SharePoint versions < 2013 was something that almost no one knew was there. They probably removed it for exactly that reason!

That would be a nice little function and not that difficult to write. I'll add it to the Issue Tracker for consideration in the next version.
