Autocomplete during registration via external API

7 months 3 days ago #328739 by activha
Hi

I was wondering whether it could be possible to add an autocomplete feature to automatically get the name, address and legal information from a company when it registers, but by using an external API for all (french for now) registered companies.

Ideally I'd like to use the API of societeinfo.com/api-doc/#get-company to first use the autocomplete feature in the cb_company field and then use the json results to populate the other cb fields required at registration.

They have a GitHub example at github.com/aonnen/societeinfo-sandbox

Could you give me some hints at how to integrate this in cb_fields ?

Should I use an autoaction ? or only the code auto complete of the cb field ?

The API will return a json field like the ones displayed on the page, so how can I match cb fields with this ?

Do you have examples of code somewhere ?

Thanks

CB Code Field provides PHP based autocomplete. You can use whatever PHP code you want, including making an HTTP call to an external service, to handle your autocomplete.

You won't need CB Auto Actions for this.

Do you have examples of code somewhere ?

Simple example as follows. Sorry, can't help you with the rest as we do not provide custom coding assistance. You'll need to code the HTTP call, processing it, etc.. yourself.

if ( strpos( $value, 'pass' ) !== false ) {
	return [ 'Pass_1' => 'Pass 1', 'Pass_2' => 'Pass 2', 'Pass_3' => 'Pass 3', 'Test_4' => 'Pass 4', 'Test_5' => 'Pass 5', 'Test_6' => 'Pass 6' ];
} else {
	return [ 'Test_1' => 'Test 1', 'Test_2' => 'Test 2', 'Test_3' => 'Test 3', 'Test_4' => 'Test 4', 'Test_5' => 'Test 5', 'Test_6' => 'Test 6' ];
}

This simple example shows the Pass autocomplete result set if the fields value is "pass" otherwise it shows the Test result set.
