Friends AutoComplete Box v1.0.0

Release Notes

I wanted to have an Auto Complete type box to choose a friend instead of the select box.

What This Plugin Solves:

This plugin extends the input/pulldown view in Elgg to create an Autocomplete box instead (theoretically, this could be used for any pulldown, not just friends).

What Happens?

The plugin automatically hides the select box and displays the autocomplete input field using all of the select box options as values to suggest. Then, when a proper option is selected, the hidden select box value gets updated to the value correlated to the text that was typed. Pretty simple and unobtrusive!

Do I Have to Do Anything Different?

Just add the class to the pulldown - and you should be good to go.

How do I use it?

$friends = amazing_function_formats_this($_SESSION['user']->getFriends());
echo elgg_view('input/pulldown', array('class'=>'OHT_ElggFriendsAutocomplete', 'name'=>'friends', 'options_values'=>$friends);
