How to create a popup lookup form in PHP?

Postby patr9257 on Fri Oct 23, 2015 4:24 pm

We are running Zend Server on our IBM i. I have a PHP script that renders an HTML form on the browser that is populated with data from a PF on our IBM i. One of the fields on the form is a vendor number field. The user will need to enter/update this field from time to time. I would like to create a popup box that has a search field in it where the user types in the first few letters of the vendor name and the popup form gives a list of vendors from our vendor master on our IBM i. The user can then pick a vendor and the original form will be updated with the new vendor number. Again, the lookup info will be coming from our server. What is the best way to accomplish this? Thanks, Pat

Hello patr9257,
Dear this is not a popup I think you are talking about auto suggestion in PHP, well you can achieve this task from PHP, but I will suggest you for achieving this task you should use AJAX or jQuery you can find many examples on the internet I will suggest you W3Schools and you can also take online help from U.S website I hope you will find the answer to your question.
Cheers

I click on different icons here and there, trying to create a popup, or at least lookup form. But the PHP isn't working so this feature has sent over to the developer.I didn't know a solution is coming. We're all gonna test on Html and Ajax.
