textbox autocomplete validation – start validating after f.ex. 4 letters?



since surveygizmo changed autocomplete to a “contains” search instead of “starts-with-search”, I was wondering if I could affect the searching behaviour by custom scripting, f.ex. javascript. In the past, I had to bury some of my ideas cause I could not affect some things with my script.

So if anybody could tell me before I start scripting IF there’s the possibility I could affect the searching behaviour (let’s say it should start searching in the auto-suggest list after entering like 4 letters (this way it also would be less communicating with the server, e.g. less data volume), that would be great.

    Hi there! Thank you for this feedback. I will definitely pass this along to our development team for possible future improvements.

    I haven’t tried to script around this but it might be possible. Here is the plug in we are using:


    I hope this helps!
