    limit the number of characters to start the auto complete earch

    Jeevin

      Hi,

       

      Is there any way in Apex auto complete item to limit the number of characters to start the search?. For example  i want the autocomplete field to start giving result after 3 characters are typed in , eventhough there is matching entries with the first 2 characters.

       

      For example while searching for countries when typed in "In" it must not give any results. I need to get the suggestions like "India","Indeonasia" only after 3 characters are typed in.

       

      Thanks,

      Jeev
