Enketo added support for autocomplete widgets at the beginning of March 2017.

This widget turns a regular “select one” question into a search box. It’s very useful for long lists. Click the form below for a demo.

"Autocomplete Demo"

How to Use

Simple add appearance “autocomplete” to a “select one” question. That’s all.

"Autocomplete XLSForm usage"

Note that appearance “search” is an alias and is exactly the same.


This feature was made possible by funding from the Survey123 team at Esri. Many thanks to them for supporting the Enketo project and pushing it forward.
