I am trying to create a module to register for an online course. It involves the students to input their name, address, email address and name of the school. Currently they are just text fields using the forms api. The problem is that a lot many a times, students from the same school enter the name of school in different manner and as such, one school is stored in the database under multiple names. This becomes an issue if i try to search for a school as not all the entries would come up.
I was thinking if it was possible to have an autocomplete text box similar to the autocomplete used in live search in drupal and the search box in browsers (top right) ..
has this been done by anyone ? can anyone help me out with this ??
thanks a lot. your help is well appreciated.
