I am working on a site which is a front-end to a pupil management database. At various points, it is necessary to have the user select the pupil they want to view. I do this using a <SELECT> form element, with all the pupils being presentedin alphabetical order.
I have been asked by some users to provide a search facility. What I'd like to do, it to put a button next to the form element which, when cliscked, causes a pop-up window to appear. This window should take a search item (a name, part of a name and preferably give wildcard options) and then close itself leaving the found item as the current selection in the <SELECT> box. Obviously, it also needs to be able to cope with empty or multiple result lists appropriately.
Does anyone know of such a piece of code being already available? Or am I going to have to write my own, in which case can anyone offer me some suggestions on where to start?
As always, Many many thanks in advance.Paul Simpson, BSc, MCNI, MCNE
