Skin form — Components tab — Controls — Autocomplete

Styles set on the Search Results tab apply to the filtered list of results that is displayed after the user types one or more characters in the autocomplete input field. The styles apply to both the standard and legacy autocomplete control.

Some styling elements are available only for the standard autocomplete control. As a best practice, update legacy autocomplete controls to standard autocomplete controls. See Upgrading deprecated and legacy controls to use standard controls on the Pega Community.

For the results that are displayed after the user types one or more characters in the autocomplete input field, specify styles for the Text, Border, and Background of the following items:

  • Row styling — Applies to all rows.
  • Secondary text — Applies to additional nonprimary field values that are displayed as secondary text. This styling is applied only when the autocomplete results are displayed as a list.
  • Focused row styling — Applies to the row that has focus.
  • Row Hover styling — For standard autocomplete controls ( pxAutoComplete ) only — Applies to a row when the mouse pointer hovers over it.
  • Match and highlight — Applies to matching text in the search results.
  • Category styling — Applies to the category headings within the search results.

For standard autocomplete controls ( pxAutoComplete only, select the Enable row banding options check box to specify Text, Border, and Background of Odd and Even rows.

To use the styles defined in the Standard format for Overlay, select the Use Standard overlay styles for search results check box.
