Simple Auto-Complete For Forms

Form auto-completing feature is seen on many websites like Gmail, Yahoo and more.

Auto-completing makes inputting experience easier & faster for the user. On the other hand it is very helpful for the standardization of content, keywords, tags, etc. It may prevent a user wrongly writing Mcrsoft rather than Microsoft for example.

Form Auto Complete

Auto Complete Control is a javascript script which offers a simple to use solution.

It is not an Ajax, dynamic-keywords script. The keywords which will be shown while filling the form are defined staticly.

Auto Complete Control has some nice features like defining “delimiters” which makes it easier to use for “tag inputs”. And it can be styled so easily.

 

How To Use Auto Complete Control?

Firstly, include the .js file into your script:

Next, create an array (in JavaScript) containing the keywords:

customarray = new Array(‘apple’,’pear’,’mango’,’pineapple’,’orange’,’banana’,’durian’, ‘jackfruit’,’etc’);

Apply the widget to your textbox using JavaScript:

actb(document.getElementById(‘textbox_id’),customarray);

And you’re done!

FancyForm is very quick to setup (only two lines of markup needed), extendible and will degrade if viewed from an older browser.

P.S. FancyForm uses the ultra-lightweight Mootools JavaScript framework (Mootools is included with the download).

Dynamic Form Autocomplete (Facebook Style)

Dynamic form autocomplete code, named TextboxList, is built on Mootools javascript framework and works just like the Facebook form inputs that are very functional.

Dynamic Form Autocomplete

TextboxList works by caching all the results from a JSON Request and feeding them to the autocompleter object. When an item is added as a box, it’ removed from the feed array, and when the box is disposed it’s added back, so that it becomes available in the list when the user types.

This dynamic form autocomplete solution has a “without autocomplete” version that can be found here.
