How to Display Image in jQuery UI AutoComplete Textbox in PHP

If you are using PHP as your Web Development and if you have build any PHP based website, then in your website you have to require any Search feature. Then in that Search Textbox, if you have add auto complete search list, and if you have one more feature like display image with that auto search list. So, it will add one advance level of feature in your Website UI experience.

In most of the website we have generally seen autocomplete textbox with name or email or simple text, but there are very less website has display image in pre-populated search result. Here we will make autocomplete textbox, in which make list pre-populated search result with image. This feature we will make by add custom html tag in jQuery UI autocomplete method by add _renderItem. Here we will use __renderItem method, by using this method we will add custom HTML code in autocomplete textbox.

By using jQery UI, we can easily implement autocomplete widget on any input textbox element. This autocomplete widget has provide us many customizing option as per our requirement. So, here our requirement is display image with search result. So, It has provide this _renderItem method, in which we can define custom html code for display image in auto suggest search list.

This jQuery UI autocomplete plugin is very easy to integrate in our existing code. By using simple autocomplete() method we can initialize this plugin on any define input textbox element. This plugin has use Ajax request for fetch data from PHP script. We have to define PHP file name under source option. When it send Ajax request to PHP script and it will received response from PHP script in JSON format and it will as auto suggest search result on web page without refresh of web page. So, this autocomplete widget gives auto suggestion as search result, which user can see below autocomplete textbox while searching value in the textbox element. Below you can fine complete source with online demo link also.
