I'm working on a Magento site meant for employees from different departments within a company to purchase goods. I've created an installer to create the address attributes which shows correctly in the Admin Customer Create/Edit screen as depicted:
The idea here is that the admin person should start typing in the
Department field, and it should bring up an auto-suggest list. Selecting the appropriate option should auto-populate the
Department ID field, which is what is required by the Stores Office to deliver internally.
I already have the Departments and associated data set up via a module which created my database table for me.
I can do the jQuery auto-suggest and JSON data lookup required, but I'm totally unsure how to customize the
Department field (jQuery function triggered for
keyUp event) and to make the
Department ID input read-only.
Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction? Thank you!
I was contemplating editing the
app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/customer/tab/addresses.phtml file and injecting my jQuery in there, but I don't think that would be the proper way to do it.
