Type ahead (auto-complete) in FileMaker Go

Recommended Posts

Does FileMaker Go support the auto-complete (type ahead)like it Dows in FileMaker Pro?

 

I am using a dropdown list that is very long and in FileMaker Pro it is very convenient to use the type ahead feature to help navigate the list. It doesn't seem to work in FM Go. What would you suggest for a work around?

Steve,

 

Thanks for the response. I assume that you are suggesting that a scripted find could be used instead of making the selection from a drop down list. Is that correct?

I've tried it both ways. I think that a find on an indexed field works pretty quick. I did see one post on another forum where you don't start the find until the second or third letter.
