SOLVED

Adobe LiveCycle Upper Lower Case typed in value into a dropdown list

Please let me know if there is any way for a user (someone sent a form created with Adobe LiveCycle Designer to complete and email back) to be able to click on a populated dropdown list and type in a value which matches one of the values in the dropdown list, but for the user not have to worry whether or not they type it using all upper case letters, lower case letter or a mix.

For example, my XML data for this list is a listing of over 1200 names as follows:

<text>Jim Nazium</text>

<text>Chuck Roast</text>

<text>George Towne</text>

etc...

I would like the user to be able to type in "Geo" or "GEO" or "geo" and get taken to the part of the dropdown list for the first George it comes to....

Thank you

A workaround I used for this was to make the data all upper case and then force the user's input to upper case.

To force upper case you can use the following on the Change event:

xfa.event.change = xfa.event.change.toUpperCase();
