    Alpha Character Recognition in Dropdown Box

    Branchard0902

      I hope I can accurately describe what I am trying to accomplish.

      I have a PDF with a dropdown box that has a long list of names in it.

      I want the box to recognize what the user is typing and offer them the selections that match the characters they are typing.

       

      For example, the box contains the following names:

      Aimee

      Brandy

      Brittney

      Casey

      Daniel

      Donna

      Erica

      Kimberly

      Margie

      Melvin

      Monica

      Nancy

      Rebecca

       

      When the user types "N", I want Nancy to be the option that populates the box.

      When the user types "B", the first option they see will be Brandy. But if they type "B" "R" "I", I want the box to then show the name Brittney.

      When the user types "R", I want Rebecca to populate the box. But if they type "R" "I", there would be no auto population and they could keep typing the name - for instance, Richard.

       

      Does this make sense? I can't get it to recognize anything past the first alpha character typed. I just don't know what script could accomplish this.

       

      Please help!!

       

      Thanks,

      Brandy
