1. What does the component do?

  • It helps the user with entry by providing suggestions.

2. When should the component be used?

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

3. Rules

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