Introducing Ajax Auto-suggestion for the RinkAtlas Search Box

Ajax Autocompletion Screenshot

I've just added an auto-suggestion feature to the RinkAtlas search box. If you start typing the name of a rink, the name of a city, or a zip or postal code, RinkAtlas will search its database and show you a dynamically-generated list of search suggestions. You can either choose one of the suggestions or continue typing more characters.

The suggestions provided by RinkAtlas may include:

  • Rink names,
  • City and state pairs and city and province pairs,
  • State and province abbreviations,
  • ZIP and postal codes.

The suggestion list is ordered alphabetically, so you may see some unusual choices at the top of the list when you have only typed a couple of characters into the search box.

The auto-suggestion feature is a work in progress. There are a few things that I'd like to change and/or clarify already. However, I wanted to get this feature into production so that you could use it and let me know what you think of it.

If you have any comments or questions about the auto-suggestion feature, please email me at daiello [at] rinkatlas.com.
