Auto-fill fields in Jfx

Auto-fill of fields in JFx.  So instead of using the dropdown to get the list of fields and then start typing, they just want to start typing and have the dropdown appear that way

Customers really want this.  Remembering to show the list first is not as intuitive.

    Liked! Just one concern: how well will this work with tables with a very high number of fields though?

    I agree this is not intuitive. It's something that I can see when training new users to Jet they have problem at the beginning with this two step process. 1/ drill down 2/ perform a field search 

    And even for the seasoned Jet Designer this will be a great productivity feature

    Absolutely i agree.  i have used Jet for 8 years and still start typing before dropping down the list.  that is the Windows norm and Jet is not following it.

    Almost every single time I teach a Jet class my students comment on this. So glad it's getting in the queue!
