Siebel Auto Complete Plugin :- Part 1

Hello All,

In Siebel Dropdown fields (LOV) we have option to enter some Letter and related Option are shown in Dropdown, as shown in below image.

But in Normal Text Fields we have to enter the complete information there is no option of auto-complete.
We can extend the Option for auto fill for normal text fields also by the below mentioned Method.

  • We need to use a 3rd party Plugin that Offers Auto Complete option
  • I am using file from TypeAhead, http://twitter.github.io/typeahead.js/
  • Include the file in Our PR file 
  • Call Method in PR file
  • We can either retrieve the Option from Fixed set of value as in this example or From a file (.txt) or at run-time by querying Database (will take this in further articles)
Sample PR Code 

you can download typeahead.js file and PR file from here

SiebelAppFacade.AutoComplete = (function () {
function AutoComplete( pm ){
                /* Be a good citizen. Let Superclass constructor function gets executed first */
                SiebelAppFacade.AutoComplete.superclass.constructor.call( this, pm );
                /* Static List of Control Identifier which will be displayed in Carousel; */

            SiebelJS.Extend( AutoComplete, SiebelAppFacade.PhysicalRenderer );

AutoComplete.prototype.ShowUI = function(){

var controls = this.GetPM().Get("GetControls");

// read out Description field
$('[aria-label="Alternate Phone #"]').dblclick(function(){

// var controls = pm.Get( "GetControls" );
             var cntrl = controls[ "Description2" ];
// alert(controls);
var Status = pm.ExecuteMethod( "GetFieldValue", cntrl );
responsiveVoice.speak( Status );


 var substringMatcher = function(strs) {
 return function findMatches(q, cb) {
var matches, substringRegex;

// an array that will be populated with substring matches
matches = [];

// regex used to determine if a string contains the substring `q`
substrRegex = new RegExp(q, 'i');

// iterate through the pool of strings and for any string that
// contains the substring `q`, add it to the `matches` array
$.each(strs, function(i, str) {
 if (substrRegex.test(str)) {


var states = ['Alabama', 'Alaska', 'Arizona', 'Arkansas', 'California',
 'Colorado', 'Connecticut', 'Delaware', 'Florida', 'Georgia', 'Hawaii',

 'Virginia', 'Washington', 'West Virginia', 'Wisconsin', 'Wyoming'

//$('#1_Last_Name').typeahead({    /// tt-menu  tt-open

$('[aria-label="Alternate Phone #"]').typeahead({
 hint: true,
 highlight: true,
 minLength: 1
 name: 'states',

return "SiebelAppFacade.AutoComplete";

Working Example of the above is :
