The example below uses the Autocomplete element of jQueryUI and this sample code


Figure 1 : Adding a Text Field to the Form

First, add a Text Field element to the form and put "city" as field ID.

Next, add a Custom HTML element to the form and copy the following script into the Custom HTML property. 

    $(function() {
        $( "[name$=city]" ).autocomplete({
            source: function( request, response ) {
                    url: "",
                    dataType: "jsonp",
                    data: {
                        featureClass: "P",
                        style: "full",
                        maxRows: 12,
                        name_startsWith: request.term
                    success: function( data ) {
                        response( $.map( data.geonames, function( item ) {
                            return {
                                label: + (item.adminName1 ? ", " + item.adminName1 : "") + ", " + item.countryName,
            minLength: 2

Figure 2 : Adding a Custom HTML Script to the Form 

1. By default, the js library file of jQuery and jQueryUI is included in the Joget form.
2. The "city" in "[name$=city]" in the code must be the same with that in your Field ID.

After adding the script, click on Preview in Form Builder. Type "kua"; the text field will appear like this:

Figure 3 : Preview and Check Autocomplete Field 

A preview and check on the Autocomplete text field showed that it is working, although it looked a little unpleasant.  Adding the following CSS to the Custom HTML improved the way the Autocomplete text field looked.

    .ui-autocomplete {
        border:#000 1px solid;
        padding: 5px;
        width: 250px;
