Our users are complaining that on android devices, when they go on to add an entry to a double field(esriFieldTypeDouble), they see the field autopopulates with suggestions which does not happen on ios devices. This should not be happening since this is supposed to be a value that needs to be entered manually.

Hi @Anish_Adhikari ,

For any text input field (string, double, etc) we store the 3 most recent values input for convenience; this cannot be toggled off. It sounds like this is not useful in your use case.

We do have plans to move the recents to another location on Android - a menu button that must be tapped to open and access the recent values. I think this will help alleviate some of your concerns.

 

Regards,

Colin

Hi @ColinLawrence 

Yes, in our case, users are getting confused. Field values which they must type in and are only supposed to hold unique values get suggestions which do not make sense. Otherwise they really love the product. Do you have an ETA on when this new update will be available?
