im pretty new to creating sites using ajax, and i've got an irritating problem.
i have a dropdown box which is dynamically populated from the name field in a mysql table.
when a entry from the dropdown is selected, about 10 text fields get populated with the rest of the information for that person.
my problem is that if a field is missing a value, it sort of gets stuck and just says "loading".
i can attach my code, if needed but off the top of your heads, can you think of a way around this?
