Hi, I need to create a search box from a list of 3000+ address. If the address if found, the person is redirected to page (form) and to another if the address is not found. I have tried this with both lookup fields looking up from a file I upload and now with Dynamic Field.  I can get it to work with both lookup and dynamic as a dropdown windows but I want a box they start typing in and it auto completes the address or in a dropdown window limiting the dropdown window till the find the correct address.  However when I check the Autcomplete box or either the lookup or dynamic fields then embed in a website. It won't let me type in the field.  Shouldn't I be able to type in the fields on the pubic view?  This is the recent tutorial I was following https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3zngIUaFyY and it worked as a dropdown windows. I just need to figure out to allow a person to start typing in the box.  Thank you for any help

When you say "embed" is the form on the same domain or at another domain?

This search form uses dynamic fields with autocomplete enabled: https://formidable-masterminds.com/developers-directory/

Bobby has a point, if you're embedding the form on another site, the jQuery required to manage the autocomplete may not be loading. Or, you may have a jQuery error from another script that could be preventing the autocomplete code from executing. Do you have any errors in the browser console?

I have found it works in windows 10 but the issue is happening on my windows 11 computers. The page is now getting stuck as Page Unresponsive on windows 11. I'm going to check the sites php settings. Thanks, I would love to know if anyone else has had windows 11 issues.

I don't experience any problems with Windows 11 using the latest Edge browser. Whatever is happening appears to be related to your environment. It seems to be local to your setup.

Are you using Windows 11 as your server or simply as a client? What browser are you using? Have you tried other browsers?

Troubleshooting a local issue like this requires hands on access to your environment. That's not the type of support we can provide as a community of volunteers. I suggest you consider hiring someone to help you diagnose the problem. Even at that though, there's no guarantee that the problem can be found.

I got the issue fixed, it was a extension I use for work. Thank you to everyone for your help.
