    Question Dynamic search box

    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
