Autocomplete with DB + Urgent

Hello Champs,

I fetch out the values of a table (suppose users) from database and want
to show them(user’s name) in a text-field with autocomplete…
Can i do this in rails … If yes, then how can … ?
Do not know any thing about it … May be you people can suggest me some
tutorials for it as well…
Waiting for every possible answer … :slight_smile:

Yes of course you can do it.I did it recently, and I did it using jQuery
with the plugin - http://dyve.net/jquery/?autocomplete
I exposed the right JSON API’s from my rails application and I had to
tweak
the plugin a bit to suit my needs but it works great.

There are other jQuery plugins you could have a look at too.

Thanks & Regards,
Dhruva S…

I would begin here:

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=rails+autocomplete&aq=f&aqi=g10&fp=c9fe100d9e542c1e

As a personal note, I find that autocomplete works well for smaller,
defined sets of possible inputs. People’s names can be, well, almost
anything, and I find autocomplete obtrusive in those cases. It’s not
really saving me anything.

Rails has scriptaculous and prototype built in and there are helpers
for autocomplete already. Have a look at the API documentation for
autocomplete.
