Type Ahead

Assist the searcher!

Type Ahead (also known as Auto-completion) for search fields is becoming a de-facto standard that people have come to expect.

Forward Search supports the inclusion of Type Ahead features in search solutions by providing Ajax friendly handlers that returns appropriate JSON for the type-ahead component to utilize. Forward Search can return term-lists with frequency count or perform actual on-the-fly searches for populating the JSON object as needed. 

Included in Forward Search are code snippets and a freeware javascript control that can handle task for standard type-ahead applications, or prove inspiration for developing more elaborate solutions.
