Can I use an autocomplete renderer with a select list custom field?

I have a select list that I've made that I am using to create a controlled list of items that the user can enter on their tickets. I really don't like that when I make a default select list, I have to click and scroll through the list of options to find what I need. Can I make this so I can start typing and have it fill it for me?

I would love it actually if I could make something that functions like the FixVersions field, but global in scope so I could put whatever I need in it.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Hi Peter,

Please take a look at the Communities post Creating a custom field with autocomplete text field for some further clues as to how this can be accomplished.  In addition, the comments in JRASERVER-32290 also provide workarounds that have worked for some customers.

Cheers,

Branden
