Mark Buelsing 0 164 Article rating: No rating

Use this function to set the value of a dropdown with auto complete

function setAutocompletCurrentValue(id, value) {
   $(id).val(value);
   var textToShow = $(id).find(":selected").text();
   $(id).parent().find("span").find("input").val(textToShow);
}

Called like this:

setAutocompletCurrentValue(dnn843GCSFieldName, 'test');

Notes:

The value you set it to must be a correct choice for the control from its dataset,

Not sure if the single quotes are needed or not.
