I want to use an input field in a site. Not spectacular so far.
But to help a user with data entry, I want to show a drop down of strings as suggested values, based on the characters that are already typed in the input field.
The characters in the input field are used to tag strings, coming from a mysql query and placed in an array.
These strings are a kind of reference and when a sequence of typed characters in the input field matches with a sequence of characters in the reference strings, this string is shown in a drop down an can be copied to the input field by selecting it. When there isn't a match, the user can enter a unique string in the input field.
You see this kind of features quite a lot but I don't know how to solve this.
Does anybody haves an idea how to solve one and other?
