[CLOSED] How to do Predictive search in reports like google
I am new on webfocus. I have to provide a filter on one column. It has filed called supplier name. It has more then 14000 reocrds. It is very difficult to load 14000 in a drop down list. It hangs when you run the report. Is it there any method to acheive this in webfocus or can we provide a predictive search like google as we type in. please let me know what is the best way to do this.This message has been edited.

I'd search google for 'type ahead suggest ajax' r 'ajax type ahead example'. The key technology is executing a query using the onkeyup event and using Ajax/DHTML to populate the text box (or the canvas that looks like a drop-down box).
I'm guessing that you'll need a fex that queries a table based on user input and passes those results back to the HTML front end (using the onkeyup event). The HTML will use these returns to build a list of selectable output or take the first entry and populate it as is to the text box.
