SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a problem in which I have to add an Auto Complete functionality for a new people picker of Sharepoint list newform.aspx

While Googling I found this


Which is helpful but there are 2 main problems :


  it will pick data from a custom list
  I want it to pick data from user profiles (directly from Sharepoint user profiles)


  it doesn't work with out of the box people picker
  it works with a custom textbox though

Please help me out resolving these.

Thanks in advance!

You could perhaps use the Javascript Client Object Model for this. Failing that you may need to use web services.
