Dynamic Validate the TextField with DB

Avatar

Level 2

Hello All,

When user fills in a User_ID in the text box and I want to validate it with the User DB whether the user_id is present or not in DB.

TO do so:

I do not want to use Data Connection as the form will be not store on one machine

Is there a way to do this?

For eg

AJAX, PHP, or something like that....where I can connect to DB from the form itself.

Thanks

You could consider a Web Service that returns a boolean indicating the validity of the user ID. There is plenty of doc and samples available on the Internet for building a PHP Web Service client.
