I'm looking for an autocomplete script that I can use on my LAMP platform.
I have tried scriptaculous and it works fine but in IE it is VERY VERY VERY slow and unusable. The datasets being returned are quite large too.
The user is inputting country codes for phone numbers. So after they enter one digit, quite a few results come back, for instance, after you type the number '1', 1250 results are returned. Perhaps I could be smarter about the results, right now I am just querying for 'textbox.value%' in the database.
Scriptaculous also seems to work kind of quirky in IE, but works great in FF and Safari.
