PHP Combo Box (like in MS Access)
Posted on 2012-09-11
I have a table that is going to grow considerably as the site grows with names of businesses. I don't think I can realistically put this list of businesses in a <select></select> tag using PHP to grab the names from the database due to the size and potential number of records. Is there such a thing as a "combo box" in PHP, which will recognize an entry once the user starts typing, without loading the entire database table into the list box first? I'm just thinking that this could be too taxing on a shared server. I hope I'm making sense!
