I am new to jQuery and I am trying to create an autocomplete textbox. When I use a small test database, it works fine but when I use my production database with over 3000 records, it slows to a crawl. It take >20 seconds to load the page and with each letter I type (even though I set minChars to 3), the browser times out asking if I want to continue running the script. My feeling is I need to use AJAX but I have never done that and don't know how to. I code in classic ASP with an Access database. Can anyone provide some sample code how to do this. Unfortunately I am under a time pressure to complete this project.
I need an autosuggest/autocomplete script for my field Name..I search code for that but when I tried it in my webpage it did not work. I used smarty template, php and mysql-adodb. Is there any syntax that you can suggest for a simple autosuggest the data coming from database?
I would like to use jQuery to prepopulate a form - ie make a call to a php program to get data from a database and pre-populatea form with appropriate data for the user. Can anyone point me in the right direction for some examples on the simplest way to do this?
I have a coldfusion data component that receives two arguments and runs a stored procedure and returns a large data set. I want to use a textbox with autocomplete its data is that result set. I do not want to convert the result set to an array for performance.
So I have a nice little hand rolled Ajax call to my server pulling a list from the database and displaying it in a drop down list dependant on the user input. Aka Google suggest. I am wondering if the quickest way to do this is to call the database each time with Ajax and search the results with the input, or to write an xml from the database and search that. Then when the Database is updated rewrite the xml file.
Am I underestimating MYSQL again? Or not, and I feel it would be good practice to write the xml file because it will essentially mean a lot less database calls. But I don�t know how fast searching an xml file would be in comparison to a db call. The results from the database are say 500 entries anywhere between 10 - 100 characters each. I want to know A. The best way to do this B. Lets say the site will have pretty high traffic so I am looking for it to be as tweeked as possible. I can test but thought at the end of my week it was worth seeing what peoples advice is.
I am looking for an Ajax combobox (drop down, not a text box) auto complete script. I searched for it on Google and only result which seems similar to what I am looking for, is dhtmlxCombo. And that one is too complicated for me. What I basicly need is:
When the client types on the drop down, the records appear from MySQL database and when the client chooses one and submits the form, I want the ID (not the text written) to be posted.
I've started working with the jQuery UI 1.8 Autcomplete recently with remote data. I was pleased with the ease of initial implementation, but before long I ran into a classic race condition.As I type, the search query gets more specific, so it takes less time for the server respond. As a consequence, it is possible for the old response to arrive after the most recent one. Obviously, this is producing undesirable effects.I'm a little frustrated that the plugin doesn't have a way to manage this. To me, it seems that it makes the "basic" remote data implementation unreliable in most real-world situations. It also seems as though this would be a common problem, but I've found very little literature on it.
I've found that autocomplete is a relatively new addtion to jQuery UI, so I've put the frustration aside and started my own widget which extends autocomplete to solve for three things: 1) race conditions; 2) animated open/close; 3) caching.The nature of this post is two-fold. Not only to share information I've gathered on the topic of race conditions with others who might be having the same trouble, but to (hopefully) gain some insight to how other people are solving for this.The first piece of this puzzle was that $.ajax() (and related methods) return an XMLHTTPRequest instance. As described at stackoverflow.com, this grants us the ability to use XMLHTTPRequest.abort() method. So I just keep a handle to the XMLHTTPRequest instance, and if it exists, call abort() before the next request is made.Using a firebug, I could see that the requests were being aborted as expected and the symptoms of the race-condition ceased. So far, so good... then I got to IE. Not so much.In IE, I was seeing run-time errors. The odd thing is that the run-time errors seemed to be coming from deep within jQuery UI, rather than my code yet commenting out the abort() avoided the run-times. After scratching my head for a while, I used the following simplified code to shed some light on the situation:[code]
In Firefox and Chrome, behavior is as expected - no alert box. However, in IE6 and IE8 (IE7 untested at this time), the success handler still fires! As it turns out, the run-time errors were because the response was undefined as it got passed through my success code path. My next thought was, "maybe I can just evaluate textStatus". Unfortunately, it turns out (as seen in the alert box) it contains the string "success".
I am using jquery autocomplete combobox I load more than 25000 data. I set minLength:3, delay: 700, When I start typing three characters, in the third character ie8 shows the "Stop running this script" how to handle this huge amount of data
I managed to send data from the form using php & jquery/ajax. But now I need to be able to load that data back onto the form. Is it somehow possible to use the code I have for sending the data to retrieve the data?
i am new to J query , today is my second day. I am working on a code which i need to modify. Code is in ASP.net , J query and back end SQL server. Question is: how i check the value on a text box with database table.
if I use the page without ajax it works, if I use the script jquery it works but doesn't insert the dates in the field, it send only white field. can't pass the variable POST beetween the ajax script and the php script.
I am new to jquery and i have no freaking idea about jquery. One of the requirement is to use Jquery to datastore and dataretrieval so on my aspx page, a user enters a comment and clicks on "Add" button.When user clicks on Add button, I wan to add comments to database. Once data is added to db, I also want to retrieve same data, user name and current datetime as a dataset and show it on the page. How can I achieve this? I am creating a webservice which accepts "comments" as parameter and stores into database.
Does anyone have a library or patch to call a handler if a user leaves an autocomplete field without choosing one of the autocomplete options - i.e. they've entered free text. I'm working with an app that populates multiple fields from a single auto-complete value, and our latest requirement is to clear out a bunch of fields if the user's entered something manually - rejecting autocomplete suggestions. My initial attempts at hooking into onkeyfoo and onblur haven't lead anywhere productive, and I'm hoping someone else has managed to overcome the gnarly event and timing dependencies involved with onkeyfoo and blur being used for standard autocomplete behaviour.
