Autocomplete Textbox Using Jquery

Autocomplete Textbox Using jQuery Integration (Auto suggestion)

Autocomplete Textbox Using jQuery, I am working on a project which need to do something like that user enter some letter and that will suggest data from database or some static array.

Today we will learn how we can make textbox using jQuery.

Bia research on google and many sites finally i got jQuery autocomplete to do this task easily. Enables users to quickly find and select from a pre-populated list of values as they type, leveraging searching and filtering.

Whenever user starts typing in Autocomplete enabled textbox he will see a list of suggestions based on the characters he has typed in the textbox. After getting the desired result user can select required value from the autocomplete list which will displayed in the textbox.

You can provide static values in the form of array or you can also bind Jquery Autocomplete with database. In this tutorial we will bind our Jquery Autocomplete plugin with static array.

The Autocomplete widgets provides suggestions while you type into the field. Here the suggestions are tags for programming languages, give “ja” (for Java or JavaScript) a try.

<!doctype html> 
<html lang="en"> 
<head> 
<meta charset="utf-8"> 
<title>jQuery UI Autocomplete - Default functionality</title> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.4/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css"> 
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.js"></script> 
<script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.4/jquery-ui.js"></script> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/resources/demos/style.css"> 
<script> 
$(function() { 
     var availableTags = [ "ActionScript", "AppleScript", "Asp", "BASIC", "C", "C++", "Clojure", "COBOL", "ColdFusion", "Erlang", "Fortran", "Groovy", "Haskell", "Java", "JavaScript", "Lisp", "Perl", "PHP", "Python", "Ruby", "Scala", "Scheme" ]; 
    $( "#tags" ).autocomplete({ source: availableTags }); 
});
 </script> 
</head> 
<body> 
<div class="ui-widget"> 
<label for="tags">Tags: </label> 
<input id="tags">
