    Does the SpreadSheet support AutoComplete per cell?

    This would be hints to the user as they type, which come from a predefined list.

    Similar to this:


    The field validations are similar, but instead of a dropdown list, I would like the suggestions to show as the user types.

    Hello Daryn,

    Integrating the AutoComplete widget in the Spreadsheet cell, that is being edited could not be achieved by configuring the widget. However, you could implement a Custom cell editor for the Spreadsheet, in which you could integrate the AutoComplete.

    Here you could find a simple implementation of the above. The AutoComplete custom editor is configured for the B1 cell and it could be opened after selecting the cell and click on the "A" icon. Keep in mind, that you may have to adjust the suggested implementation according to your specific needs.
