Autocomplete with DB + Urgent ..

Hello Champs,

I fetch out the values of a table (suppose users) from database and want to show them(user's name) in a text-field with autocomplete.. Can i do this in rails .. If yes, then how can .. ? Do not know any thing about it .. May be you people can suggest me some tutorials for it as well.. Waiting for every possible answer .. :slight_smile:

Yes of course you can do it.

I did it recently, and I did it using jQuery with the plugin -

I exposed the right JSON API’s from my rails application and I had to tweak the plugin a bit to suit my needs but it works great.

There are other jQuery plugins you could have a look at too.

Thanks & Regards, Dhruva Sagar.

Rails has scriptaculous and prototype built in and there are helpers for autocomplete already. Have a look at the API documentation for autocomplete.
