    How To Implement Autocomplete In A Textbox for Series 40 Device.

    I want to have Autocomplete feature in Textbox for S40 device, so the user's don't need to type full.
    i.e just type first letter, then list will its member from that letter and likewise.[list will be alphabetically sorted].
    Is it possible to implement Autocomplete Textbox in S40 device.?when I try to implement this, it goes to S40 predefined text box form.

    Hi,
    Since custom JavaScript (e.g. your autocomplete algorithm) is run in the Ovi Browser Proxy, there's no direct or simple way to implement autocomplete.
    I.e. each logical decision based on the input will be executed on the proxy essentially preventing a real-time implementation.

    Re: How To Implement Autocomplete In A Textbox for Series 40 Device.

    I have 2 questions, related to this topic.
    1. When I click textbox, standard text input form is open. Is it possible to change this behaivor, and process text input "in place", without hiding my app?
    2. How I can detect changing of textbox value ("onchange" property doesn't works)?

    Hello,

    The full screen text input form is always opened when editing text boxes.

    Unfortunately the only way to detect and read text box changes and contents is to poll and query for the value.

    I will pass a feature request for 'onChange' and to add a locally executed mwl method for querying the input content.
