Debounce Autocomplete (ajax) API call

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fee2b159138>

Hello HoT team,

By default the API is called with every keystroke, which can cause a lot of traffic and overhead, if the user has to type longer search strings.
Is there a way to debounce/delay the call to an external API on the autocomplete cell type?

Hi @juergen.hernadi

We have an internal debounce helper which might work in this case, here is an example:

If that won’t work you might need to create a custom editor with your own implementation.
