View Full Version : Facebook-like autocomplete?

18 Mar 2008, 6:12 PM
Has anyone thought about creating a clone of this Prototype component (which was itself a clone of a MooTools version). Would be _really_ nice for the Ext community! I started to take a stab at it, but it seems like a lot of work (and my prototype skills are sorely lacking).


Alternatively, if someone knows of an effort like this already underway, please let me know.

I cooked together a quick and dirty example of a facebook-like search. The only problem is- i didn't have a good set of data to search, so I used the Yahoo search api and i search images.

The goals
1) Create a searcher that can highlight the substrings of your search text
2) Create an ext store and custom dataview for visualizing the selected search results
3) provide in that custom dataview a way to remove results from the store (delete)

Try it out...

It's on a wiki, just go in and improve it in the sandbox, if you like!

Looks interesting. Nice to see what is possible with ExtJs. Good Work.
