Need to populate autocomplete with records on the basis of first and last name of schools in MySQL?


To populate autocomplete, use the LIKE clause in MySQL. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
(
   SchoolName varchar(100)
);
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.56 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Horce Greeley');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.20 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Conestoga Senior');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.12 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Adlai E.Stevenson');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.14 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Thomas Jefferson');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.07 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement :

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+-------------------+
| SchoolName        |
+-------------------+
| Horce Greeley     |
| Conestoga Senior  |
| Adlai E.Stevenson |
| Thomas Jefferson  |
+-------------------+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to populate autocomplete with records −

mysql> select *from DemoTable where SchoolName LIKE '%Con%' and SchoolName LIKE '%Sen%';

This will produce the following output −

+------------------+
| SchoolName       |
+------------------+
| Conestoga Senior |
+------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
