I was testing out the Ajax auto suggest script and i kept giving the object expected error and it is the eaxct code from w3cschool.com.

Not sure what could be wrong?


Here is the code


FORM part

<script language="text/javscript" src="clienthint.js"> </script>
 </HEAD>
 <BODY>
 <form>
First Name: <input type="text" id="txt1" onkeyup="showHint(this.value)" />
</form>

<p>Suggestions: <span id="txtHint"></span></p>

clienthint.js

var xmlhttp;
function showHint(str)
{
if (str.length==0)
  {
  document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML="";
  return;
  }
xmlhttp=GetXmlHttpObject();
if (xmlhttp==null)
  {
  alert ("Your browser does not support XMLHTTP!");
  return;
  }
var url="http://127.0.0.1/proj1/gethint.php";
url=url+"?q="+str;
url=url+"&sid="+Math.random();
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=stateChanged;
xmlhttp.open("GET",url,true);
xmlhttp.send(null);
}

function stateChanged()
{
if (xmlhttp.readyState==4)
  {
  document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
  }
}

function GetXmlHttpObject()
{
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
  {
  // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
  return new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
if (window.ActiveXObject)
  {
  // code for IE6, IE5
  return new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
  }
return null;
}

gethint.php

try something like this is your .js file. You'll need to give your form the name 'myForm' or whatever you like

var var1 = document.myForm.txt1.value;
var url = "http://127.0.0.1/proj1/gethint.php";
url+="?q="+var1;
url+="&sid="+Math.random();
xmlHttp.open("GET", url, true);
xmlHttp.send(null);
