Create an autosuggest drop-down list based on 'live' data entry

Much like Google autosuggests search terms as you start entering in a search term, I would like to do the same. I have an input field, and would like a drop down to start filling in data based on what the user enters (as they enter it). It doesn't have to have too much data, but perhaps can show a few examples for different letters or words.


How would one do this on Justinmind?

You can create all the data in a data master and then use a data grid to simulate the autosuggest. You just need to create an event so that each time the users presses a key the data grid is filtered. Check this tutorial to know how to filter data grids http://www.justinmind.com/prototyper/...

Thanks Victor. Got that working. How would I get JIMP to then apply a bold style to the letters that match the input in the data grid? Probably a basic question, but I'm brand new to JIMP. Thanks in advance!
