As a part of a form I got one field where users input an id. This id maps to a name. I want to show this name in the form since spotting a typo in a id sequence of numbers is harder than recognising a name.(In the case both Id and name are similar I guess I'm out of luck)
Doing it the other way around is not an option since names are not unique. In the context of use, ids are widely used already. So the user are accustomed to entering ids and not names most of the time.
Where I get into trouble is how do I show this mapping so it's understandable? I tried to put a label after the input field but then to me it's mostly looked like a label for a missing input field. At the moment it looks something like this:
Where the name goes in to the disabled field once an ID has been entered. However I'm not to entirely satisfied. What better ways are there of solving this?
