Proposal for "HTML_QuickForm_Livesearch"

» Metadata » Status
» Description
This package adds an element to the PEAR::HTML_QuickForm package to dynamically create an HTML input text element that at every keypressed javascript event, returns a list of options in a dynamic dropdown select box(live dropdown select).
This work can be done calling by XMLHttpRequest a script for sending
the request to the server and retrieving data from the script output in a format depending on our needs.
This type of livesearch is useful when you have a form with a dropdown list with a large number of row.
