Creating Autocomplete input field for Symfony based web form

Posted on Category:Symfony

This post describes steps required to create jQuery/AJAX input text field with autocomplete feature using Symfony php framework. It is assumed that you know how to create a web form, and install Symfony plugins, so that part won’t be explained here.
A Symfony plugin sfFormExtraPlugin is required, and, of course, jQuery (I’m using sfJqueryReloadedPlugin).
