Databasejoin plugin - issue with auto-complete rendering

    I have a table with over 80.000 records and wanted it to be joined to another table with a help of 'Databasejoin' plugin. As 'drop-down' rendering is out of the question, the only sensible way is auto-completing. The thing is - I concat labels like: {thistable}.label1,' :: ',{thistable}.label2 and found out that this field in both list and form view is pre-filled with " :: ". Is it a bug or I'm doing something wrong?

    In dbjoin settings "Advanced" you can enable "Trim empty concats".
    This will hide the :: in list and details view but it seems it's ignored in form view auto-complete

    It helped in list view indeed - THANK YOU! It looks like in form view I have to use a little JavaScript to get rid of it.
