Does your plan incorporate users who ignore the autosuggestions and do their own typing?
Yes, you're absolutely right.
And I've since matured into wanting
1 text field which the user will type a search 'something' into
which magically cfc's and populates 2 other 'just display only' fields and a hidden field to hold the id for the form submission.
And this is where I'm stuck anew because it seems I have to think about cfajaxproxy if I want to populate multiple form fields from one function query. Scaryyyy!
I've seen a couple of examples in which the 'principal' field is a cfselect which triggers the bind onload.
BUT if I don't need a cfselect bound upfront, where must I do the binding in my case. Somewhere after the user types in the search field, but before all the cfajaxproxy meat, I suspect.
Again, any advice sincerely appreciated! I don't want to give up because this is going to be so useful in the future.
I'm getting somewhere with
I managed to replace the main cfselect search field into a text field.
If there is a better way of populating several fields from one query in a cfc, then please yell!
