      Aric,

      Very sorry to hear we lost your business on this, but if you found something better suited to your needs, then that's all to the good.  

      When I looked at your XML feed (as served by PHP), it was serving with the following header:

      Content-Type text/html; charset=utf-8

      That header is going to prevent you from getting the results you're hoping for with an XML-based data source in the YUI world.

      In any case, best of luck with your project, and we hope to see you back here for a second chance with YUI down the road.

      Regards,
      Eric

      Thanks, I've abandoned YUI.  Mootools is just much simpler for what I need.

      YUI is overkill for my app right now, and I still may use a couple of things from YUI.

      Thank you for checking on this.  I had tried it both ways, with no luck.  If I looked at just the XML file, after saving the output from the php.  It worked fine, with or without the header.

      It's probably me, but I need something that just works, and YUI didn't do it for me.

      Thanks again

      Aric,


      It looks like you're not setting your Content-Type header to XML in your PHP file.  Try putting this at the very top of the PHP:

      header("Content- Type: text/xml");

      Eric

      I've spent a day and a half trying to figure this out, and I'm no
      dummy with JS.  I am new to YUI, but it looks promising.

      So I followed the simple example for connecting to a XHR source.  I
      have a php script that outputs xml like this: (consolidated of course)

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf- 8"?>
      <shipsearch>
      <ship mmsi="367053810" name="LYNNE MORAN   ">LYNNE MORAN   </ship>
      <ship mmsi="36011619" name="unknown  ">unknown   </ship>
      <ship mmsi="354264000" name="PANAM PACIFICO  ">PANAM PACIFICO </ship>
      </shipsearch>

      If I copy and paste this into an xml file, and use the XHR datasource
      to connect to it(test.xml) , it works fine, all results get returned
      out course, because it's just spitting the same thing out no matter
      how many characters you enter.

      As soon as I go to the php script connection , I get nothing.  I've
      changed everything around so many times I'm looping in my head.  No
      errors are coming with FF or IE6/7.

      I have a suspicion that my problem lies in the query appendages for
      some reason, but I can not figure it out.  I have to include the query
      parameters, this data is coming from a joomla component I built, and
      it requires the params.   Hope someone can help.

      The full query string if anyone wants to check is:
      http://www.aisdatab ase.com/index. php?option= com_shipsearch&format=raw&task=shipmmsi 

      if you add on  &query=3669  you will get a shorter list, and shorter with
      the more numbers you add, just like an autocomplete search.   :)

      Here is what I am doing on the simple html mock up page located at:

      http://www.aisdatab ase.com/test. html  

          <h3>AIS Search:</h3>
          <div id="ysearchautocomp lete">

              <input id="ysearchinput" type="text" name="p">
              <div id="ysearchcontaine r"></div>
          </div>

      <script type="text/javascri pt">
      YAHOO.example. ACXml = new function(){
          this.oACDS = new YAHOO.widget. DS_XHR("index.php", ["ship", "mmsi"]);
          this.oACDS.response Type = YAHOO.widget. DS_XHR.TYPE_ XML;
          this.oACDS.queryMat chContains = true;
          this.oACDS.scri ptQu eryAppend = "option=com_shipsear ch&format=raw&task=shipmmsi"; //Required params

          // Instantiate AutoComplete
          this.oAutoComp = new YAHOO.widget. AutoComplete( "ysearchinput" ,"ysearchcontain er", this.oACDS);
          
          // Stub for AutoComplete form validation
          this.validateForm = function() {
              // Validation code goes here
              return true;
          };
      };
      </script>

      Thank you for anyone that can help,
