Entity Auto Complete provides:

  • autocompete_paths for all entity types that define a label
  • "entity_autocomplete" form element

Autocomplete paths

The path is:
entity-autocomplete/%entity_type

To restrict by bundle use:
entity-autocomplete/bundle/%entity_type/%bundles
where bundles is a '+' separated list of bundles.

Each item is returned as
VALUEOFLABELFIELD [id:ENTITYID]

Entity Autocomplete also provides a function for extacting the id
entity_autocomplete_get_id($value)

Form element

There are 2 available options:

  • '#entity_type': The entity type [default to "node"]
  • '#bundles': An array of bundle machine name [optional]

The element has a validation process to ensure the submitted entity ID is valid. The returned value is the entity ID.

Modules with similar features

The Entity Reference Autocomplete provides almost similar features.
