      Is it possible to set multiple fields based on the autocomplete field value? For example, some code like:

      
      
      	"setFields":[
      		{
      			"fromFIN":["Title","Address"],
      			"toFIN":["ShippingToProjectName","SendToAddress"],
      			"parseFunction":"",
      			"skipIfEmpty":false
      		}
      	]

      Title and Shipping to Project Name are both single line text fields.
      Address and SendToAddress are multi-lines.

      Like this:

      	"setFields":[
      		{
      			"fromFIN":"Title",
      			"toFIN":"ShippingToProjectName",
      			"parseFunction":"",
      			"skipIfEmpty":false
      		},
      		{
      			"fromFIN":"Address",
      			"toFIN":"SendToAddress",
      			"parseFunction":"",
      			"skipIfEmpty":false
      		}
      	]

        Thanks, Alexander.

        Made a minor change in the code as the extra brackets around the Field Internal names prevent the set field action (see below). One thing I noticed is that this seems to force the (Plain Text) Multi-line text field (SendToAddress) act like a single line text field. Seems like carriage returns are disabled for both values entered in through the SetFields action and when I try to manually type text. Anyway to avoid this or is this built into the Autocomplete plugin?

        
        
        spjs.ac.textField({
        	"applyTo":"ShippingToProject",
        	"helpText":"Project number...",
        	"listGuid":"Project Information",
        	"listBaseUrl":"/sites/equip",
        	"showField":"Customer",
        	"enforceUniqueValues":true, // New in v1.33
        	"rowLimit":15,
        	"listOptionsOnFocus":true,
        	"minLengthBeforeSearch":3, // New in v 1.4.12
        	"reValidateOnLoad":true,
        	"allowAddNew":false, // New in v1.4
        	"isLookupInSelf":false, // New in v1.4
        	"filterCAML":"", // New in v1.4.3
        	"multiselect":false, // New in v1.4.4. If this is true, the "setFields section will not apply",
        	"multiselectSeparator":"; ", // New in v1.4.4.
        	"orderBy":[{"fin":"Customer","ascending":true}], // New in v1.4.5
        	"setFields":[
        		{
        			"fromFIN":"Title",
        			"toFIN":"ShippingToProjectName",
        			"parseFunction":"",
        			"skipIfEmpty":false
        		},
        		{
        			"fromFIN":"Address",
        			"toFIN":"SendToAddress",
        			"parseFunction":"",
        			"skipIfEmpty":false
        		},
        		{
        			"fromFIN":"Tax_x0020_Jurisdiction",
        			"toFIN":"TaxJurisdictionCode",
        			"parseFunction":"",
        			"skipIfEmpty":false
        		}
        	]
        });

      Hi,
      You are right about the brackets – I didn’t notice it when I copied your original code.

      I’m not sure what you mean with the multiline text field. Are both the “Address” and “SendToAddress” multiple lines of plain text? – I did a test here and it looks like the linefeeds are preserved.

        Yes, both are multiple line plain text fields. If it’s working for you, I’ll explore things further on my end.

      You can email me some screenshots if you like – maybe I can figure out what is goint on.
