Combo box, jQuery, and XML

  • # May 19, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    About a year ago I created my employer’s intranet site (really just a 2 pager). I used Dreamweaver and the Spry framework to create a link repository with the link categories in the main region and when clicked, the detail region would list all the associated links for that category (the data coming via XML).

    I’ve since switched to Coda and no longer use DW at all. I’m redesigning the intranet to a single pager and have a new idea for the link repository but I’m not sure how to implement it.

    I would like to have a combo box that lists any links dynamically. A user could search for the link by site title (like autosuggest) and the results show up underneath in a table, zebra-striped format that the user can then click on to open the link in another tab/window.

    I’m not sure if I am clear enough in that description, but I want to create something similar this: … ddcombobox
    except I want the results list to stay visible and clickable.
