Autocompletion in InputField Type 'textbox'


Is it possible to create an input of type textBox with autocompletion?
If yes, can you please give me an example?

Thank you.

This is possible in V3 of UD which I was playing with the other nightā€¦but this is only in beta release stageā€¦I did a custom component drop down menu here:-
which I think is as close to an autocomplete field you will get as this does auto-complete

thatā€™s exactly what iā€™m looking for, thanks.
However, is there a way to block multiple additions?

Hello @Hakmoon you could just use a drop-down list so only one option could be selectedā€¦I used the selector component I built as the original problem I saw using a lot of screen space with all the check-boxesā€¦so multiple choices was the original problemā€¦so yeah just use a built in UD drop down list for thisā€¦You need to download UDField from the marketplace here:-

thatā€™s exactly it, thank you very much for your help.

ps: why donā€™t you put the ā€˜Get-UDSelectorValueā€™ function in the UniversalDashboard.UDSelector module?

In any case, well done for your responsiveness.


Sorry this was sort of same question I answered on a different post, I got a cool example here of dynamic text boxes:- in the second example of the readmeā€¦the reason the function didnā€™t get included as this was done after building the componentā€¦and not knowing, I do know now, but just have not got round to publishing an update, as I do these in my own time :crazy_face: and I got 4 kidsā€¦ I should publish an update thoughā€¦

um, i have a problem with data recovery.
The toast does not display anything.
I used several examples given and impossible to display the selection in the toast.

Hey @Hakmoon sorry to hear you having issues using thisā€¦ so first off have you read through:- New Multi or Single Select Component for UniversalDashboard as I know a fellow dashboarder was struggling but got there in the endā€¦ secondly have you tried the example shown here:-

Import-Module -Name UniversalDashboard.Community -RequiredVersion 2.8.1
Import-Module UniversalDashboard.UDSelector
Get-UDDashboard | Stop-UDDashboard
$theme = New-UDTheme -Name "Basic" -Definition @{
    '.css-1wa3eu0-placeholder'        = @{
        'color' = "#56587b !important"
    '.css-1okebmr-indicatorSeparator' = @{
        'background-color' = "#56587b !important"
    '.css-1hwfws3'                    = @{
        'height'      = "30px"
        'align-items' = "flex-start"
        'box-sizing'  = "initial !important"
        'flex-wrap'   = "initial !important"
    '.css-1rhbuit-multiValue'         = @{
        'background-color' = "#323246 !important"

    '.css-xb97g8'                     = @{
        'background-color' = "#56587b"
        'color'            = "#fffaf4"
    '.css-12jo7m5'                    = @{
        'color' = "rgb(255, 255, 255) !important"
    '.css-tlfecz-indicatorContainer'  = @{
        'color' = "#56587b !important"
    '.css-yk16xz-control'             = @{
        'border-color' = "#56587b !important"
    '.css-1g6gooi'                    = @{
        'padding-top' = "9px !important"
        'color'       = "#56587b !important"
} -Parent "Default"
$init = New-UDEndpointInitialization -Module @('UniversalDashboard.UDSelector', 'UniversalDashboard.UDField')
Start-UDDashboard -Port 10005 -Dashboard (
    New-UDDashboard -Title "Powershell UniversalDashboard" -Theme $theme -EndpointInitialization $init -Content {
        New-UDRow -Columns {
            New-UDColumn -size 7 -Endpoint {
                $Processes = Get-Process
                $hash = @()
                foreach ($item in $Processes) {

                    $hash += @{
                        value = $item.Name
                        label = $item.Id
                New-UDSelector -id  "selector1" -Options {
                } -PlaceHolder "Select running processes..."
            New-UDColumn -Size 4 -Endpoint {
                New-UDButton -Text "Processes Selected" -OnClick {
                    function Get-UDSelectorValue {
                        $value = (((Get-UDElement -Id $SelectorId).Attributes.selectedOption | Select-Object Root -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) | ConvertTo-Json -Depth 2 | ConvertFrom-Json | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Root -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) | Select-Object -First 1
                        if (!$value) {
                            $val = ((Get-UDElement -Id $SelectorId).Attributes.selectedOption | ConvertTo-Json -Depth 1 | ConvertFrom-Json | Select-Object -ExpandProperty SyncRoot) | Select-Object -ExpandProperty SyncRoot
                            $length = $val.length
                            $i = 0
                            Do {
                                if (($i % 2) -eq 0) {
                                    $value += "$($val[$i])" + ","
                            While ($i -le $length)
                            $value = $value.TrimEnd(",")
                        return $value
                    $Selected = (Get-UDSelectorValue -SelectorId 'selector1') -replace ",''"
                    if (($Selected) -notmatch "\A'" ) {
                        $Selected = "$Selected"
                    $Session:Selected = $Selected
                    Show-UDToast -Message "You selected $Session:Selected" -Duration 4000 -Position topLeft


This should list all process IDs then then process names will be shown when you click the buttonā€¦

Sorry, my fault, I had run the script in PowerShell V7.0.
The script does not work with version v7 of PowerShell.

Thank you for your help.
