Autocomplete Textfield With AJAX And Php?

Apr 23, 2007

I saw a neat demo example of this using and ruby on rails framework to do autocomplete textfield.

but was wondering if there is anything to run similar on php platform (with AJAX/scriptalicious also doing same effects)?

My current regular old html dropdown list has thousands of clients currently and it is taking >10 seconds filling the <option> list, hence why i am looking to use a short autocomplete list to let user fill in clientname.
Since this page can be edited, i hope there is a framework that knows that fills the text in the textfield appropriately like all the demos i see online,
but it should also set a hidden form field with the ID of the client chosen.

so if they click Update, then i can use that clientID value to update the database. Also if the user erases the text (or maybe fills in half of the text but doesnt choose a client from drop down), the hidden form field clientID should be removed so i know the user is unsetting the optional field/ or hasnt chosen a client.... and i can accordingly update the clientID field to NULL in database.

Use A PHP Array And Turn It Into Am Xml Request For Ajax Autocomplete?

I recently was assigned to a project that deals with AJAX, something I have never dealt with before. I do know what I am doing with javascript/php/mysql though. I just installed a plugin that I know how to use every part of it, except where it processes the request. This is an autocomplete plugin. It says I need to format my data like this

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<text><![CDATA[text to display]]></text>
<value><![CDATA[value to fill]]></value>

Is there a way to do that with PHP using an array of data I have?

Browsers Support Autocomplete For Ajax Loaded Login Forms At All?

My problem is, that the browsers' (IE&FF) autocomplete does not work for my login form. I have a webapp with CakePHP & jQuery. To allow visitors to login/register unobtrusively. The login form is inside a div, which is loaded via AJAX. (This enables logging in without a page reload.)

The browsers do recognize it as a login field, as they prompt me to save the credentials when clicking login. And they really do save the username/password, as they appear between the saved ones in the browser settings. But the saved username/password is never entered automatically. They do not appear pre-entered when the page loads. When I start typing in the username, the username appears as a suggestion, but even when you select it, the password is not entered next to it. Why? How can I get this working?

That you can test it yourself, here is a simple AJAX login form:[URL]...It loads the following login form, if you go to the url below, autocomplete will work for just the plain form, so it is not a problem with the form itself, but rather that it is AJAX loaded:


To clarify: I do not want to use AJAX autocomplete, I want the browser's autocomplete to work for my login form. This is an issue between my form and the browser. jQuery submission seems to play a minor role, as the usernames/passwords are saved. They are just not auto-entered for ajax loaded HTML elements! (The test site does not use jQuery submission.) Related question:[URL]..

Attach JQuery Autocomplete To A Text Field Which Is Loaded By Ajax Call

I have a simple web application in which I have created a wizard, each wizard page contains different form fields which are populated from database, as user presses next the page data is retrieved from server using Ajax call. Here is the code of the page which is retrieved from server against an Ajax call. I am making it simple to understand..

function printAdAlertWizardStep($step)
case 1: //step of wizard, first step
print "Welcome to alert wizard,...";

Now the problem is that the form is loaded after the user presses next and the $(document).ready() function has fired already when the #nalertkw text field doesn't exists. So the autocomplete is not working. I am using Jquery-UI Autocomplete, How can I attach the autocomplete to a textfield which is loaded through Ajax call?

edit: Moreover I have tested my setup on a simple page (without Ajax call) with textfield and attaching the autocomplete to that text field the same way. It works absolutely fine. It confirms that autocomplete setup is correct, but it don't works when attached to a textfield which is retrieved through Ajax call.

Jquery Autocomplete : Autocomplete Does Not Stop If String Does Not Match?

I used the auto-complete function in jquery. It's data source are the results from a php-back-end.

$("#ice_id").autocomplete("ice-ver.php", { extraParams : { flavour_id: $("#flavour_id").val() } });

Let us take following example:We type in the flavour ID 3992 ...(and 3992 exists in the database and is properly returned by the php backend). If we type in now 3992999 the auto-complete function should top showing anything up ...but unfortunately it still does, (could the problem lie within the fact that I am using integers instead of strings or chars?)

Getting Value Of Textfield

How does one obtain the value of a text field for inclusion into a URL? I have a for with multiple link fields. From each link field I want to do different actions. One would be to add a record to a database another to edit the record and another to delete a record.

The information for the query is contained in several text fields on the form. To pass the information to the action php file I am build the URL with the necessary information. So my question is how does one obtain the value of the text box for inclusion into the URL. My test code is as follows:

<a name="buttonAdd" href="doMgmtAdd.php?action=add&recordID=0&Date=<?php echo dateTextfield.value; ?>">[/url]

Doing this only appends the text "dateTextfieldvalue" (note no period) to the URL, and causes the sql INSERT to enter a date of "0000-00-00". If I do the following:

<a name="buttonAdd" href="doMgmtAdd.php?action=add&recordID=0&Date=<?php echo '2007-05-06'; ?>">[/url] a valid record gets added.

Textfield Is Parsing Its Value?

So I got this form:

<form action="welcome.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="secret" value=<?php echo getMyValue() ?> />
Name: <input type="text" name="txt" value=<?php echo getMyValue() ?> />
<input type="submit" />

You see the text input element? The value is the result of getMyValue(). Such result is a line that contains HTML tags, like <b> <i> etc... And, apparently, when the text contains such tags, my text input breaks. If the text doesn't have such tags, everything is alright.

Textfield String Handling

I'm trying to build a program allows users to hit the page and "build their own press release". It's amazing how many small businesses don't know how to do this already. In any case, the program would take this input and format a HTML file which could then be either sent to the user, or formatted to my press release format and saved as a HTML file on my site.

I think everything is working great, EXCEPT the textfield. How do you take text input from a user by way of textfield, and preserve the carriage returns <BR> and paragraph markers <p> to fput correctly into the html file?

Populate Textfield From Dropdown

I know I have done this before but I havent programmed in a while and I can't seem to figure it out. I have a DB with ID, item, unit, and cost where item is the name of the item, unit is the unit of measure (i.e. - per hour or per day etc..) and cost is the price per unit.

Now, I have a form that auto generates and item dropdown list from the DB. Then there 2 text fields - one to enter quantity and one to enter price. What I want to happen is when an item is selected, the price per item goes in the price text field automatically and then next to the quantity field it changes to 'per hour' etc..

Placing Content In TextField

Why isn't the data from the database field displayed here. PHP Code:

<input type="file" name="image" id="image" value="<?php echo $row['image'] ?>" />

when it is here... PHP Code:

<input type="textfield" name="email" id="email" value="<?php echo $row['email'] ?>" />

Is it because it is type="file"? If so how can I fix it?

Textfield, Special Characters

I'm working on a site where they want to add a new article once a month or so. They want to be able to do so without my help, but noone knows html, so let alone php (well, I don't know it either really) and Flash. My idea was that they could write the page as a textfile and then I'd like PHP add some basic markup.

While doing a test with str_replace() I noticed that double quotes and opening (147) and closing (148) double quotes are different characters. They'll probably be using Windows' notepad and I assume ANSI encoding. Hopefully, as UTF written with Notepad gets a few extra characters added I don't know how to handle either.

But since by default it's set to ANSI. I think I saw a thread on that while searching for an answer on that one, so I'll look into that later, when I'm a bit more knowledgable. I found this list on the internet, but I'm not sure what to do with it. if I can convert these characters and if so.

PHP Refering To A HTML Textfield

I'm currently attempting to incorporate some validation into a page but have come across a problem. The page contains several textfields that require information entering into them - on clicking Submit these details are entered into a database.

However, before the page is submitted, I want to be able to check whether the fields are empty or not, or check whether they contain non-numeric values for example. The code I currently have can test PHP variables and submits the form if the conditions are passed, or displays a pop up box if the conditions are not passed. How do I refer to a html textfield as opposed to a php variable though?
