    Tecnology behind search autosugest

    I saw this website http://travideos.com/ today and loved the way the search works, as you type you can see the results, even clasified in categories (cities, countries), what tecnology is used to do that ? i would love to be able to do that to pimp some of my client work.

    Hi garyparks. Welcome to the forums.

    That search box uses some pretty fancy JavaScript to make an Ajax call to the server and suggest results as you type in the search box. If you view the source code of the page, you'll see that the bottom half of the page is a whole lot of JavaScript.
