I'm working with the 'Type Ahead' functionality available in 7.5, specifically for a Name field used on the Incident application.
I have created a custom field MXREPORTEDBYNAME field on TICKET to hold the DISPLAYNAME from the person record as we want this available for reporting etc on the ticket.
In App designer we have enabled Type Ahead with the domain attribute being DISPLAYNAME being the Key field, see attached
The linked domain MXRREPORTEDBY is crossover which pulls in the Phone Number, Email Address etc from the Person record
The issue I am experiencing is that the crossover does not seem to fire when using Type Ahead (i.e. selecting a record from the type ahead list) the crossover fields are not populating even though the Display Name is entered as expected. When using the normal Lookup magnifying glass, the crossover works and all fields come across to the incident
Has anyone else had this problem using Type Ahead?

Re: Maximo 7.5 Type Ahead - not initiating Crossover Domain?2013-03-22T20:42:17ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Eugene, this worked for me, I attached my typeahead to the out of the box REPORTEDBYNAME field, and attached the crossoverdomain to the REPORTEDBYID field.
When I used typeahead to select the REPORTEDBYNAME field, I have it set the REPORTEDBYID field (under it's Set Value setting). This triggers the crossoverdomain and populates the other ticket records.
One thing to examine is the settings for your client side validation.
Check these system properties:
You might consider turning them down, I used 1 for the threshold and 100ms for the timeout. It causes the client side data to be sent to the server more frequently. Not recommended across high latency networks.
See my attachment for this additional "set value" configuration off the REPORTEDBYNAME field.
