Anley Lafleur: "I cannot wait to start using your exciting product and I am sure it will help me achieve my objectives".
Olivier Auverlot: "At my work (a universitary computer research laboratory), I'm alone to create all applications and databases. I don't know how I could do all the work without it. It's really a very productive software. I can focus on the database schemas and create quickly the user applications with a minimal amount of code to maintain".

Suggestions

Suggestions for the AutoComplete editor can be based either on a data source (in this case you need to specify the data source name, field name, and the sort order) or on a PHP function with the following signature:

 

function OnGetSuggestions($term, &$suggestions);

 

Parameters:

$term

Current input

$suggestions

Array of suggestions for the current input

 

Example

The following example from our Feature Demo demonstrates how it is possible to use the Google API to get the list of suggestions. Don't forget to replace XXX to your Google API Key.

 

$url = 'https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/queryautocomplete/json?key=%s&input=%s';

$key = 'XXX';

$sourceUrl = sprintf($url, $key, urlencode($term)); 

 

$contextOptions = array(

    "ssl" => array(

        "verify_peer" => false,

        "verify_peer_name" => false

    )

);

 

$json = file_get_contents($sourceUrl, false, stream_context_create($contextOptions));

$result = json_decode($json, true);

if ($result['status'] == 'OK') {

    foreach ($result['predictions'] as $prediction) {

        $suggestions[] = $prediction['description'];

    }

} elseif ($result['status'] == 'OVER_QUERY_LIMIT') {

    $suggestions[] = 'Query limit is exceeded';

}

 

Minimum input length

Use this option to specify minimal amount of symbols to start retrieving suggestions.
