#D8CX: I pledge that Views Autocomplete Filters will have a full Drupal 8 release on the day that Drupal 8 is released

#1604690: Seeking co-maintainer(s) for drupal6 versions

Add autocomplete functionality to the views filter text fields.

  • It works for node titles or cck text fields.
  • The autocomplete results are actually the view results, so they are view related.

How to use it:
(New) Video Tutorial : Drupal 7 Views Autocomplete Filter Tutorial

  • *** The filter field should also in the view list of the fields
  • You just have to check Use Autocomplete checkbox in the filter expose settings.
  • (D7) Pay attention to the "Field with autocomplete results" options - an autocomplete setting
  • Known issue : Unexpected error message such - Field with autocomplete results is not selected for Content: Title filter in Defaults (default) display.
    Solution : Check the MASTER (default) Display, probably the autocomplete field was removed (#1748900: Field with autocomplete results is not selected)
    To get the MASTER (default) Display check the Views Settings page
    Administration > Structure > Views > Settings (admin/structure/views/settings)

Tips & Tricks:

  • To work as you wish you have to make the right choice for the operator of filter field, most likely to use "Contains"
  • For referenced entities (entity reference, node references, term reference) use referenced entity fields for the filters with the right relationships.
  • *** If you have more titles fields defined in fields and/or filters the correspondence between field & filter must be right
    for example: if field is title_2 then also the filter field should be title_2

*** Not sure if these are still a must
