136 +To provide autosuggest to several elements on the form, you can use JavaScript to loop through all the form elements and provide autosuggest if they meet certain conditions. In the example below, if there are form elements with id 'Supplier' in the 'inline' form, they get assigned an autosuggest that uses the Suppliers space as its source. If the element id matches 'Product' the autosuggest is told to use the 'Products' space as it's source instead.

138 +This method can be very useful when a form contains a lot of similar elements that require autosuggest. If you make sure the naming is done consistently, you can also use javascript to assign autosuggest based on part of the element id, for example 'all elements ending with _foo' or 'all elements starting with Bar_'. You can use the velocity code from the example above with the code below.
