Custom field that allows for users to define values

I want a custom field where a user can type in a string and, if the string already exists in another issue, autocomplete. If it doesn't, allow the user to create a new one. What I'm basically looking for is something like the "labels" field but allow for spaces. Does something like this exist? Thanks!

You can create a custom field of type "Label". Have you tried that?

The problem with using the label field is that you can't have spaces in the values (see my original post)

Ah sorry, you are right. Labels cant have spaces.
