Simple XMLHttpRequest Search & Display

__________________________________________________

I'd like to create a "simple" web application that allows users to search for available domain names.

As they type a domain name into the search field, the results are populated below (without the need for a submit button).

However, it would search using GET requests, like:

http://www.site,com/search.php?domain=DOMAIN

It would then tell the user which extension is available for their chosen domain name:

Such as:

somedomain.com = Available
somedomain.net = Unavailable
somedomain.org = Available

and then return each result as a link like:

http://www.site,com/info.php?domain=DOMAIN


Hope this isn't too complicated...

Thanks...

you are not getting many responses as people here don't feel its their task to do other people's work
without being paid for it.
people are here to HELP, and ANSWER Q's, and TEACH.

if you need help your Q should go something like:
I am trying to ....
So far I did ....
However ....
Does anybody know howto/why/..... ?

So,
what have you done so far ?
what technology are you using ?
who are the clients for this and what is the domain that you plan to make the searches against ?

what do you mean when you say:
"As they type a domain name into the search field, the results are populated below (without the need for a submit button)."
does that mean that if I type bigredcars

I will get
b.com
b.net
b.org
bi.com
bi.net
bi.org
big.com
and so on
?????

I never said I wanted anyone to create this project for me.

Please re-read my original post. I said "I'd like to create a "simple" web application that allows users to search for available domain names."

Notice I used the phrase "I'd like to create"? I never said "I'd like YOU to create".

Anyways, yes, basically just a live search that populates the results as they type.

An example would be nice.

Thanks!

what would you have running on the server-side ?
IMHO - if your page comes from one domain you will not be able to get the results from another one - on the client side - unless you are running something with elevated permissions - like an .HTA (html application).
if you would like to do this from the backend however - your solution would depend on your server side technology.

would you like an example for .NET ?

I would have PHP on the server side.

Also, let's say, that the searches would be made using: http://www.networksolutions.com

Thanks again.

well, on that case (since I don't know Any PHP) I would suggest that you ask you Q again in the php TA (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/PHP/)
for the backend support support,
and I guess that would also be a good place to ask about an AJAX framework that works with PHP.

If you want to get better understanding of related topic before you ask again you can search up on "xmlhttp" and on "ajax".

good luck,
