I've noticed that the autocomplete textfield widget has not been ported to Drupal 7.
I'm looking for a way to provide user with suggestion for already submitted values, but I don't want to create a free-tagging vocabulary, since I don't want a page with all nodes with a particular value.
What can I do? Has this feature been ported to a separate module like Node Reference?
I've tried Autocomplete Deluxe module, but it works only with terms, not with textfields.

The References module provides autocomplete text fields for user and node references.

  • Thank you, but I need a textfield just to store a string, not a reference.

  • My point was that the functionality exists in D7, so it could be generalized or adapted. Plus you did mention Node Reference by name :) Apr 6, 2011 at 13:52
  • Sorry, I thought Drupal 6 has this feature for textfield too, but I was totally wrong.

Since the original answer was written, some modules have appeared that do Autocomplete and/or dropdowns for textfields:
