Auto search field

A very common requirement that we come across is the need to have a search field which would make a delayed call to provide suggessions. For example, few characters of users name are added to a text control which makes an automatic service call (delay of 1 sec of inactivity before REST call) to get the details from backend system and display them as a list similar to the way it's shown in Auto complete.

We could not find any of the OOTB control which could support it. How can this be achieved in Pega

There is no OOTB control available but you could build your own and have it execute the pxRetrieveSearchData activity to search the text against full text search indexes. Please refer to details here -
