This example uses AutoComplete to find images by tag from the Flickr webservice. A simple PHP proxy is used to access the remote server via XHR. The
generateRequest() method has been customized in order send additional required parameters to the Flickr application. The
formatResult() method has been customized in order to display images in the results container, and the default CSS has been enhanced so the results container can scroll. Finally, a
itemSelectEvent handler has been defined to collect selected images in a separate container.
Implementers who are working with data from third-party sources, user input data, or otherwise untrustworthy sources should be sure to read the Security Considerations section of the AutoComplete user guide.
Note: Logging and debugging is currently turned off for this example.
