Pegasus adds new “auto suggest” and “multi auto suggest” field types.

As their names suggest, these fields predict data entry and show a list of possible, matching options. The auto suggest field can contain just one value and the multi-auto suggest field can contain several (separated by a semi colon “;”).

The data can be heirarchical too making this a very powerful data field.

As an example, here’s an auto suggest field that has permitted values of Continent/Country (set up as a pick list for the field in the preferences panel).

  • Starting to type Europe shows a drop down of European countries
  • Starting to type United shows a drop down containing United States, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom
  • Starting to type Islands shows a drop down of items containing Islands; ie the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands etc


The multi auto suggest field allows multiple items to be chosen:
