SuggestBox: Free Ajax Component

Category: Component, JavaScript

Giorgio Braga has just released SuggestBox, a freeware AJAX component that can give to any web page the power of Google Suggest referred to own database tables.

How to use it

  • Add span tags with a SUGGEST attribute (e.g. <SPAN SUGGEST ID=”author”></SPAN>)
  • Add the JavaScript libraries ( <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=”javascript” SRC=”SBinfo.js”></SCRIPT>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=”javascript” SRC=”SBcode.js”></SCRIPT>)
  • On the server side you need a very simple page, able to run queries based on requests and to return results in a known format. (An ASP page is included in the download)

Visit the SuggestBox home page where you can download the code.
