Hello,

I'm guessing this code is available somewhere - I just can't find it!

I'm looking to create a text box - similar to Google search - where when you begin typing a word, a dropdown box appears of the likely words. I know which words I want (it'll just be a list of schools and unis in the UK) - does anyone know where I can find the code for this?

Thanks,

Gemma

Its called Autocomplete.

You can have jQuery's Autocomplete plugin to make this work

Just another really good one.

You can get a great autocomplete demo and code from dhtmlgoodies.com.

Here is the link: http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.html?whichScript=ajax-dynamic-list
