Country

This section is about how to deal with the country field in the form, how to autocomplete and choose the right way to the country input.

01Default value

Today automatic country detection works with high accuracy. So it would be strange not to use it, forcing the user to scroll through a 200 item list in search of the country.

It's not good to make the user scroll through a long list of countries.
It is good to automatically detect the country of the user and set it as the default value.

02Autocomplete

If you can't detect the country automatically, or if the choice doesn't depend on where the user is now, the best solution is an autocomplete input.

Typing the first letters of the country and choosing from the options found is faster than scrolling through a list of many countries.

It is good to use the input with autocomplete to select the country.
