Unfortunately, I don't understand what you want.  Javascript is likely what you need to solve the problem.  I don't know how well you know Javascript so I'll direct you w3 schools.  Perhaps you can find something similar to what you want done and we can proceed from that point.

look it's very simple

i have a form with 2 fields phone and location

when someone press on the phone a number like 5

i want to search a table or an array whatever is easier and search inside it

like this
select location where phone > from and phone < to
and i want the result to be shown in the second filed

Something like this

<script type="text/javascript">
function changetext(){
	var userInput = document.getElementById('phone').value;
	document.getElementById('area').value = userInput;
<input type='text' onKeyup='changetext()' id='phone' value='' />
<input type='text' id='area' value='' />


Open in new window

but i want the second value to be searched inside a table or inside an array

I'm not sure I understand yet.  Sounds like you are OK with the Javascript - right?

Do you need help searching SQL or XML?
