    Searchable drop down box




      I'm looking to design a mental health "progress note". I need to have some sort of searchable drop down box that will list all the mental health codes. (300-400 codes)

      Would anyone be able to assist me in making this happen or point me in the right direction?

          What do you mean by "searchable", exactly? How would you like it to behave?

            Hi George,


            I know that this is an old thread, but I have a similar question in regards to creating a searchable drop down list in Live Cycle Designer.  I'd like the choices in the drop-down list to narrow as additional characters are entered in the text box, until the user clicks a choice or only a single choice remains.  The search can be for initial characters rather than for anywhere in the string, but should ignore case, since all characters in the choice list are upper-case alphanumerical, with a period -- then followed by a description. (e.g. "M22.2X2 Patellofemoral disorders, left knee" or "M22.2X1 Patellofemoral disorders, right knee".)


            Using a text box to emulate a drop-down list, I couldn't position the next form element higher than the bottom of the list box.  Using a regular drop down object, I got further than single-character search, but the first list item matching user-entered characters would end up selected even if a different item was clicked in the drop-down list.  Additionally, in attempting to ignore case, I'd end up with the destructive backspace or delete keys not working, which prevented entry error correction.

              Since you're dealing with a LiveCycle Designer form, you should ask this question in the following forum: LiveCycle Designer
