Using textbox instead of Dropdown in Schedule Search


Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I'm hoping someone can help! I'm looking to use a search text box instead of a dropdown menu on our Schedule Search page (http://flyhighva.net/index.php/schedules) I'm smart enough to realize that the file I want to play around with is schedule_searchform.php   I am NOT smart enough, however, to mess around too much without breaking something. I'm good at editing and building off of someone else's start - but I for the life of me can't start something new (if that makes any sense, lol) 

 

The area of code I'm looking at changing to allow a pilot to enter a ICAO code instead of searching the never-ending dropdown menu is lines 16 thru 45:

	<div id="depapttab">
		<p>Select your departure airport:</p>
		<select id="depicao" name="depicao">
		<option value="">Select All</option>
		<?php
		if(!$depairports) $depairports = array();

		foreach($depairports as $airport) {
			echo '<option value="'.$airport->icao.'">'.$airport->icao
					.' ('.$airport->name.')</option>';
		}
		?>

		</select>
		<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Find Flights" />
	</div>
	<div id="arrapttab">
		<p>Select your arrival airport:</p>
		<select id="arricao" name="arricao">
			<option value="">Select All</option>
		<?php
		if(!$depairports) $depairports = array();

		foreach($depairports as $airport) {
			echo '<option value="'.$airport->icao.'">'.$airport->icao
					.' ('.$airport->name.')</option>';
		}
		?>

		</select>

Any suggestions on where to start? Using Simpilot's 5.5x version of phpVMS.

 

Thanks!

I would change this:

<select id="depicao" name="depicao">
  <option value="">Select All</option>
  <?php
  if(!$depairports) $depairports = array();

  foreach($depairports as $airport) {
   echo '<option value="'.$airport->icao.'">'.$airport->icao
     .' ('.$airport->name.')</option>';
  }
  ?>
</select>

to this:

<input type="text" name="depicao" id="depicao" placeholder="Enter Departure ICAO..." />

 

and do the same for the arrival airport as well, just change all the depicao to arricao in the new input.

 

Hope that helps.
