      $query = "SELECT * FROM tbl_student WHERE student_name LIKE '$char%'";

  2. Perfect!

    I think Alphabetic Pagination plugin has been developed with the same concept. It's a great contribution to opensource community.

  3. Alphabetic Pagination Plugin using this technique perfectly.

  4. what if data are too long and want to display them by pages like in

  5. Very efficient for database with less than 100 people
    With hundreds of data, Ajax with PHP using text input is better and would produce more direct results. I just discovered this site and you're pretty amazing , thanks for your effort. The voice doesnt matter.

  6. not running because of $_GET["char"] replace both $_GET["char"] on top with $_GET["character"] then its running so i waste 30 minutes for it :/
