Facebook like Autosuggestion with jQuery, Ajax and PHP


I received a lot of request from my readers that asked to me how to implement Autosuggestion search with jquery. I love facebook API it's neat, so I had developed Facebook like Autosuggestion user search with jQuery, Ajax and PHP. It's simple and clean just you have to change the database details.

Facebook like Autosuggestion with jQuery, Ajax and PHP.

Take a look at live demo, search word " sri "

Download Script     Live Demo

Download the Script. Edit Config.php change the database details.

Database
create database table with name "test_user_data"
CREATE TABLE test_user_data
(
uid INT AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
fname VARCHAR(25),
lname VARCHAR(25),
country VARCHAR(25),
img VARCHAR(50)
);



Auto.html
contains jquery(javascript) and HTML Code. Take a look at input field class values search
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
</script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(".search").keyup(function()
{
var searchbox = $(this).val();
var dataString = 'searchword='+ searchbox;
if(searchbox=='')
{}
else
{
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: "search.php",
data: dataString,
cache: false,
success: function(html)
{
$("#display").html(html).show();
}
});
}return false;
});
});
</script>

<input type="text" class="search" id="searchbox" />
<div id="display">
</div>

search.php
Contains PHP code. Display search results

<?php

include('config.php');
if($_POST)
{
$q=$_POST['searchword'];
$sql_res=
mysql_query("select * from test_user_data where fname like '%$q%' or lname like '%$q%' order by uid LIMIT 5");
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($sql_res))
{
$fname=$row['fname'];
$lname=$row['lname'];
$img=$row['img'];
$country=$row['country'];
$re_fname='<b>'.$q.'</b>';
$re_lname='<b>'.$q.'</b>';
$final_fname = str_ireplace($q, $re_fname, $fname);
$final_lname = str_ireplace($q, $re_lname, $lname);

?>

<div class="display_box" align="left">
<img src="user_img/
<?php
echo $img; ?>" />
<?php echo $final_fname; ?>&nbsp;
<?php
echo $final_lname; ?><br/>
<?php echo $country; ?>
</div>
<?php

}
}
else
{}
?>

Using Watermark Input plugin
To show information about the contents of a text field.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.watermarkinput.js"></script>
</script>
jQuery(function($){
$("#searchbox").Watermark("Search");
});
</script>

CSS
id #diplay overflow : hidden
*{margin:0px}
#searchbox
{
width:250px;
border:solid 1px #000;
padding:3px;
}
#display
{
width:250px;
display:none;
float:right; margin-right:30px;
border-left:solid 1px #dedede;
border-right:solid 1px #dedede;
border-bottom:solid 1px #dedede;
overflow:hidden;
}
.display_box
{
padding:4px;
border-top:solid 1px #dedede;
font-size:12px;
height:30px;
}
.display_box:hover
{
background:#3b5998;
color:#FFFFFF;
}
