Text Hinting

Text hinting on forms is a method of helping the user to choose from a list and if the item the user is looking for something else can still type in their requirements.

On the Sample below is a list of UK Counties start typing in the name of County and then choose it from the drop down menu, You can type in any case you like this code accepts both upper and lower case. The only letters that do not appear in any uk counties are J Q and Z.

There are so many practical uses this could be used for to assist the user:

  • Stop Spelling Errors
  • Assist Visitors with locational names
  • Restrict input choice
  • Place names with unusual spelling
  • Suggestions on what the user is looking for

Start Typing and a drop down menu will appear.
