The AutoComplete widget offers suggestions as a user types that come from remote data. In a second step the user selects one suggestion. An Autocomplete widget can be used to restrict a large amount of options (e.g. a huge contact database) to a much smaller, but relevant range. Since only the pre-filtered options are transferred to the client, the Autocomplete widget offers a good performance also in slower browsers. The AutoComplete widget is available since GMSC 2013.

Methods & Properties

The AutoComplete widgets inherits all methods and properties from BaseModel, the following methods have a different behaviour:

fill(values, selectedValue)

pre-fills the widget with a list of values and optionally selects the selected Value.


{Array} values An array of objects containing the list-of-value items. Each item must have the following structure {id: 'valueOfItem', name: 'Label shown in the widget'}

{String} selectedValue (optional) value that should be pre-selected.


Fill a list-of-value-widget (AutoComplete, Combobox or editable Combobox) with two items and pre-select the second one:

var lovWidget = IG.form.getItemById('LOV');
lovWidget.fill([{id: '1', name: 'First Item'},{id: '2', name: 'Second Item'}], '2');
