I’m working on a BPOS demo (soon to be available up on Microsoft’s site) and I wanted to add a little pizzazz. I’ve known about Jan Tielen’s efforts for quite a while and I thought it would be a great technique to add to the demo, so I did. You can read about it here: http://weblogs.asp.net/jan/archive/2009/07/02/sharepoint-search-as-you-type-with-jquery.aspx. It’s so simple to use it should probably be a crime (and maybe is somewhere).
I add just two points to what he already created / wrote about:
- This does, in fact, work in a BPOS (SharePoint online) environment.
- To make it work without an annoying popup message prefix the reference to the jquery library with https instead of http, as in:
Jan points out that you should probably move the library itself to your site. Feeling a little lazy today, I decided to blog about it instead
