AutoCompleteManager manages a set of input controls, popping up suggestions when a user types into one of the fields. Instead of replacing TextInput fields with a specific AutoComplete control, you can simply point the manager to one or more TextInputs, and you'll get a slick pop-up or auto-fill interaction.
AutoCompleteManager is not fully accessible, due to the fact that it is a composite component utility and cannot have its own role. However, the internal TextInput and List will be accessible.
To enable accessibility in your Flex application, set the
-accessible compiler option to
true. If you are using Flex Builder, open the Project's Properties dialog and set it from there.
For additional topics, please read Using AutoCompleteManager, or take a look at the Examples section for functional demonstrations. The ActionScript 3.0 Class Reference contains full details on every property, method, and style available to the AutoCompleteManager component.
Sample Accessible Application
Below is an embedded application built to showcase accessibility. To experience this application properly, you must have a screen reader installed and be familiar with how to use it. Accessibility was developed with JAWS for Windows as the primary screen reader. Installing the JAWS Flex Scripts is highly recommended to obtain the most reliable results.
