help! autocomplete is killing me :(
- View Sourcea deadline is fast approaching, and I'm having some issues with
autocomplete maybe someone can help resolve. i'm already to the
point of desperation where i tell my partner i'll be late, so i can
write my own.
1. i'm using an TYPE_XML result set, but the ac doesn't say it has
any response, so my popup doesn't show up. How can I make sure the
core libraries are correctly parsing it?
2. i'm using case insensitive/contains matching on the server side,
how do i tell autocomplete ui to be case insensitive?
any help is greatly appreciated.
my datasource looks like this
['list.celeb', 'name', 'celeb_id']
<name>Edward James Olmos</name>
- View Sourcefunctionform,The answer to your specific question is that AutoComplete case sensitivity is controlled in the DataSource:myDataSource.queryMatchCase = true;However, note that in a DS_XHR DataSource (like the one you're using) this property only controls the cache behavior; it's not likely that this is the root of your problem. On the first retrieval of data for any string, DS_XHR will simply pass along the maximum allowed number of results as provided by the server.More likely, there is a problem with the server's response or with the schema for parsing it. I doubt it's possible for the group to help diagnose this further without a url to your implementation.Regards,EricNote: In the code below, which is probably just pseudo code, there's a typo -- id is listed as celeb_id in the schema.On Oct 2, 2006, at 12:26 AM, functionform wrote:
