Thank you for all the information. We really appreciate the suggestion,
the references, and the assistance.
We have a definite set of choices, however it's a long list that it takes
a while for the user to get to the item/value when it's in the middle of
the list. By the way, we do not allow adding values to the list.
We would like to be able to enable the users to type the first few letters
of the value and the select list filters the list showing the items
starting with the letters typed by the user.
Again, thank you for the information.

The suggestion to use soft keyboards and custom dictionaries is a very
good one. This gives the behavior most people expect when they hear
The usability issue on this feature is here:
The key issue is that most people, when they think of autocomplete, think
of an unbounded set of answers, with the tool providing assistance for
entering the common answers.
Unfortunately, the select1 prompt type in javarosa expects a finite set of
known values, and will not allow an unbounded set, but, without using
select1, there is no way in javarosa to specify a list of common answers
for a selection; XForms has a more general interpretation of this can can
support non-finite sets of values.

Vinia, I don't think autocomplete/look-up worked properly on version
1.1.7. As an alternative, try soft keyboards with custom dictionaries.
Then you can use the latest ODK, and still enjoy lookups. Sort of.

I read from a post that autocomplete used to work in version 1.1.7. I
tried to install this version but autocomplete isn't working. Is there are
an older version where autocomplete works? I have a select list which has a
long list. And this is badly what we need..

Check out "autocomplete" in the developers' mailing list. This feature was
supported in older versions but was dropped due to outstanding issues.
Check out Mitch's reply on this issue:
You might want to pick it up from there.

Excellent thought process Kyriakos - however, I think you might have to
develop that one...it's a good project actually.

I wonder how easy it is to implement look-up functionality in a survey
questionnaire. For example I would like the data entry form to be
pre-populated with existing data (i.e households) during data collection.
Which tool should be employed in order to cover such kind of functionality?
Thank yo in advance!
Play it forward and Have a good one!
