What does the component do?

It supports the user when entering suggestions.

When should the component be used?

  • When an entry field can have lots of pre-defined values.
  • As an aid for previewing search results/fields.


  • Autocompletion always has a label.
  • Optional entries include the text ‘(optional)’ behind the label text. The text ‘(optional)’ can be abbreviated as ‘(opt.)’ in short fields.
  • A question mark in the circle can also be shown – in addition to the label – for detailed explanations. A tooltip opens if this question mark is clicked on.
  • During entry, suggestions appear directly (usually after three symbols but they can be modified on a project-specific base).
  • The entries listed can be scrolled through using the arrow keys and accepted with Enter.
  • A maximum of ten suggestions are shown.
  • The autocompletion selection closes when an element is selected.
