The example at http://alloy.liferay.com/demos.php?demo=autocomplete is good but uses a local variable as the datasource. I've been looking for an example that shows how to use AUI.AutoComplete that fetches (json) data from a database through ajax but no luck so far...

So, now I'm turning to the great Liferay community emoticon


My code (which doesn't work for browsers other than Firefox):

 1    window.AC = new A.AutoComplete(
 2        {
 3            dataSource: function(request) {
 4                var items = null;
 5                resUrl.setResourceId("depositSearch");
 6                resUrl.setParameter('search',A.one('#<portlet:namespace/>_searchField').get('value'));
 7                A.io.request(resUrl.toString(), {
 8                    cache: true,
 9                    sync: true,
10                    timeout: 1000,
11                    dataType: 'json',
12                    method: 'get',
13                    on: {
14                        success: function() {
15                            items = this.get('responseData');
16                        },
17                        failure: function() {
18                        }
19                    }
20                });
21
22                return items;
23            },
24            dataSourceType: 'Function',
25            schema:  {
26                metaFields: {javaClass:"javaClass"},
27                resultListLocator: "list",
28                resultFields: ['id', 'name']
29            },
30            schemaType: 'json',
31            forceSelection: true,
32            autoHighlight: false,
33            matchKey: 'id',
34            queryDelay: 0.5,
35            typeAhead: true,
36            contentBox: '#myContainer',
37            input: '#<portlet:namespace/>_searchField'
38        }
39    );


The above works in Firefox. For other browsers, I can see in the logs that calls are made and the results are properly created at the server-side. Internet Explorer 8 fetches and displays the results if I leave the searchbox empty ...

I created a jira ticket for this but am not sure if it's really a bug or just me doing something wrong.

I seem to recall reading something about YUI and problems with synchronous calls sync: true. Maybe this is the reason? But with sync:false, the above fails since items (returned by the datasource function) will be null if not waiting for the data to arrive.

Hopefully, someone has got a solution to this, perhaps using some predefined datasource rather than a function.

Any insight on this would be great!

The following alloy autocomplete code works fine.But instead of associating autocomplete with the div element,I want to associate with my input text field.
 1<div id="myAutoComplete"></div>
 2<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
 3AUI().use('aui-autocomplete', function(A) {
 4
 5    var cities = [
 6            ['AH', 'Ahmedabad', 'The Land of IIM'],
 7            ['AM', 'Amritsar', 'City of golden Temple'],
 8            ['BL', 'Bangalore', 'Silicon Valley of India'],
 9            ['CA', 'Calcutta', 'City of Joy'],
10            ['DL', 'Delhi', 'Land of Hearts'],
11            ['JA', 'Jaipur', 'The Pink City'],
12            ['JP', 'Jodhpur', 'The Blue City'],
13            ['SU', 'surat', '.Diamond City']
14 ];
15
16    window.AC = new A.AutoComplete(
17        {
18            dataSource: cities,
19            schema: {
20                resultFields: ['key', 'name', 'description']
21            },
22            matchKey: 'name',
23            delimChar: ',',
24            typeAhead: true,
25            contentBox: '#myAutoComplete'
26        }
27    );
28       AC.render();
29});
30</script>

to hook it onto an input text field, just add the "input: '#<portlet:namespace/>to" option like Thomas had posted.

1<div id="<portlet:namespace />autoCompleteContainer">
2    <aui:input name="to" value="<%= to %>" />
3</div>

Hope that helps

@Scott

Please don't understand me wrong, but I am still getting a bit used to alloy. What should be the correct code when using a datasource in ajax. I tried several things and I know my servlet is working (excuse the language) to retrieve the words/products, and my ajax call is correct, because I see my data which is being transfered, but the last part. I cannot get the data in the autocomplete field.

I used the example of Thomas. But please extend the source.

Just some more considerations it must be the json data that is bugging me because a simple dataset is working fine;

 1window.AC = new A.AutoComplete(
 2        {
 3            dataSource: function(request) {
 4                var items = null;
 5                var urlS = '<portlet:resourceURL  id="search" />'+'&search='+A.one('#<portlet:namespace/>searchwords').get('value');
 6                A.io.request(urlS, {
 7                    cache: true,
 8                    sync: true,
 9                    timeout: 1000,

11                    on: {
12                        success: function() {
13                            items =  eval(this.get('responseData')); // the evil eval
14                        },

Thanks Jelmer! Got the missing piece (defining a datasource)!

Your example works in Firefox but I I cannot get it to work correctly in IE8. When searching, the warning symbol is displayed (see attached image).

I noticed that there's a semicolon (;) missing in view.jsp and thought that might be the reason but it makes no difference:

1autocomplete.generateRequest = function(query) {
2    return {
3        request: '&q=' + query
4    };
5}[color=#F31919];[/color]

Hello Jelmer,

Sorry for wasting your time, as it turned out, it wasn't working in Firefox either... Due to the fact that I mixed up which server was currently running!

I have one 6.0.5 server and one 6.0.10. On the latter I escape all URLS by default so by adding

1var dataSource = new A.DataSource.IO(
2    {
3        source: '<portlet:resourceURL [color=#1F22E6]escapeXml="false"[/color] />'
4    }
5);


It works in both IE and Firefox...

Thanks again

Regards Thomas

I can't get remote data to work with autocomplete. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help you can provide.

drop-down-1 will work just fine, but drop-down-2 returns the exclamation mark.

http://localhost:8080/c/journal/get_template?groupId=10165&templateId=11803 is simply a template that has ["Chicago","Charlotte","New York","New Brunswick"] as its content.


<h1>No ajax</h1>

<div id="<portlet:namespace />drop-down-1"></div>

<aui:script use="aui-autocomplete">

var cities = ["Chicago","Charlotte","New York","New Brunswick"];

new A.AutoComplete(
{
dataSource: cities,
schema: {
resultFields: ['name']
},
matchKey: 'name',
delimChar: ',',
typeAhead: true,
contentBox: '#<portlet:namespace />drop-down-1'
}
).render();

</aui:script>
