help with ajax and javascript in php

P: 8
so basically i have a form which has an input type text for id and then i also have a input type text for name..

and then i also have a query in which it gets the matching name for that id.

sample : sql = "select name from names where id = '".$id."'";

how can i implement this concept in which, you can input the id and then the name of that corresponding id which automatically display in the name textbox..

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <label>Id</label>
  2. <input type="text" name="id" id="id"/>
  4. <label>Name</label>
  5. <input readonly="text" name="name" id="name" value="" />

Have a PHP-script output the value so an XMLHttpRequest-object in Javascript can request it.
