View Full Version : Auto Complete Like Text Box
07-09-2002, 06:48 PM
Has there been or is there any method or function already created that will based on the entry event cause a textbox to behave such as the auto complete feature in IE?
e.g. Can you make a text box that behaves like a drop-down combo list box?
Any/All suggestions are welcomed!

QuietStorm, thanks for the link...
I want to "enable" a similar feature but not the autocomplete in IE.
The feature would provide a set of values to allow the end user to choose from or be able to type in their own value.

You can pretty much re-engineer form controls into behaviors of your choosing; MSIE 'autocomplete', obviously, involves a pretty sophisticated level of data manipulation and would require a lot of work. If you're just looking for something to impress/spoil your users, here's a easy sample:
font: 200 14px "times new roman";
border:3px darkgreen double;
border: 1px darkred solid;
<table><tr><td>My website is</td><td>
<input name="t1" type="text"
<select name="choices" style="visibility:hidden;"
<option value="barely tolerable">Barely Tolerable</option>

Thanks Adios that is really slick!!
I added in "multiple" to the select tag and it behaves exactly as I wanted!!
I appreciate you taking the time to code it out!
Thanks for sharing all your knowledge! :thumbsup:
