    Unanswered: Auto complete text field for the MySql data

    Hi,

    I have just got one situation in which I need to incorporate a text field with auto complete list according to the entry in it so that user can select one of the listed ones without typing completely. I wanted the list to generate from mysql database using PHP.

    Similarly, I just wanted to add two radio buttons as 1) Starts with 2) Contains with so that user can select before typing in the text box.

    Can anyone please guide me with this venture with code plz.

    sounds like you want to use AJAX alongside your PHP scripts

    it can be a bit daunting at first but worth the effort.

    it puts additional laod on the server(s) and bandwidth
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Thank you Healdem.
    And yes, you are right that there will be load on the server and still as it is required, I had asked this. And anyhow, I got the ajax working in my script.
    Thank you once again.
