    What technology is used here?

    Hello,

    I want to create a textbox with the functionality seen at the national rail website: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk. When you search for a station you can see that when you start typing a station name a drop down appears which has values which containing the letters you have entered.

    What technology is used here please?

    Many thanks.

    They are using Ajax for this , It will post the data to the server in the back end and get the results with out page reloads.

    You can use the Jquery Javascript library to handle this. There's many plugins you can explore.

    You can also use php for that. it take more time to develop a java code.

    hello,

    thanks for all the suggestions. They are all good options. I have tried a couple for what I am trying to do but is what I really need is for an autocomplete box which when you select from the drop down not only does it bring through the value you clicked but also some other values too.

    For instance I could have a file the autocomplete is reading from with a list of data like this:

    "australia, 9, 8 ,0"
    "albania 8, 7 ,8"

    the autocomplete would bring through the whole string but I would rather have:

    "australia"
    "albania"

    and have the numbers brought through too but transparently to the user. Is this achievable????

    Thanks.

    Its AJAX which is a combination of Advanced Javascript and XML.
