Hi experts,

Thank you as always for taking a look at my question which i am hoping is an easy one.

I have the below web page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
   <head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="totalcall.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-ui-1.10.3/ui/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="scripts/jquery-ui-1.10.3/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" />
 
        <script type="text/javascript">
                $(document).ready(function(){
                    $("#term").autocomplete({
                        source:'getautocomplete.php',
                        minLength:3
                    });
                });
        </script>
   </head>
 
   <body>
 
      <form method="post" action="">
             Name : <input type="text" id="term" name="term" />
      </form>
  
   </body>
</html>

Open in new window


Essentially this sends data off to a php page, which submits the data and returns the results. I know the curl is working because i can see the response when I turn on the dev option in firefox.

What I need to know is how can I get the results to display in either an iframe or a small table on the html webpage.  If you need any of the JS files please advise.

many thanks again!!

You can use appendTo
http://api.jqueryui.com/autocomplete/#option-appendTo
        <script type="text/javascript">
                $(document).ready(function(){
                    $("#term").autocomplete({
                        source:'getautocomplete.php',
                        minLength:3,
                        appendTo: "#id-of-div"
                    });
                });
        </script>

Open in new window

The proviso of this is the div you want to show the results in must be in the same container as your input field.

Hi,

I tried this, but nothing is still coming through.

<!DOCTYPE html>
   <head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="totalcheck.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-ui-1.10.3/ui/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="scripts/jquery-ui-1.10.3/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="totalcheck.css" />
 
        <script type="text/javascript">
                $(document).ready(function(){
                    $("#term").autocomplete({
                        source:'getautocomplete.php',
                        minLength:3,
						appendTo: "#resultsname"
                    });
                });
        </script>
   </head>
 
   <body>
 
      <form method="post" action="">
             <p>Name :
  <input type="text" id="term" name="term" />
             </p>
             <div name="resultsname" id="resultsname"></div>
             <p>&nbsp;</p>
      </form>
  
   </body>
</html>

I have it now displaying "No results found then the text box - which is strange because i can see the data that is being generated from the PHP file.  

Do I need to show you my PHP file perhaps?  or Am i calling it incorrectly?
