Topic: Autocomplete - Display Value

sergiojaviercaz premium asked 2 years ago

I have an array of objects with item_Id and item_description. I want to show the item_description and also use it as search criteria, but when user selects one option, I need to get the item_id. I looked for that in the documentation but couldn't find a way to get it.

You might want to use Select with search for this purpose, as it stores value as the attribute

Autocomplete is an text type input, which stores only displayed value. Otherwise you have to make a custom script.

Please insert min. 20 characters.
