View Full Version : Gmail/Yahoo Type Address Popup

07-30-2008, 12:29 PM

If any of you are using Gmail/Yahoo, you might have noticed that when you want to compose a new mail, in the To: field, you type the first one, two or three character of the person whom you want to sent the mail and a list of similar address pops-up in a list, and you can select the one whom you want to send the mail.

Whats that pop-up process called and where can I find the source code of it for my website?

I would have searched google before posting but since I didnt knew wot is it called, hence I had to post it here.

Thanx for your help :)

They are using ajax powered search, see http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_ajax_livesearch.asp for a basic setup.
