  • Hi KnockOff,

     

    The InfoPath form text box AutoComplete feature is provided by Microsoft Internet Explorer, but this feature didn’t support rich text box by design.

     

    It should be difficult/impossible to store many the rich format texts typed before and auto-complete with first characters using code in InfoPath form.

     

    If you didn’t use many function of rich text box, you can use the Text Box with multiple lines format as a workaround.

     

    Thanks


    Regards, Daniel
