Chapter 15. Search suggestions

dmBridge is able to provide search suggestions from CONTENTdm® field indices based on user input from the HTTP query string. What this means is that you can do something like the following:


And receive a list of suggestions for your term - in this case, "building." Whatever JavaScript solution you use for suggestions should query this URI. dmBridge tries to be client-code-agnostic, and to that end, it leaves the JavaScript up to you.

Search suggestions are a documented feature of the dmBridge HTTP API. More information about them is available by navigating to your HTTP API documentation, available at http://my_cdm_server/dm/api/1/doc.
