Tag hinting or label hinting javascript library

Tag hinting or label hinting is a very useful thing for forums and blogs, where it is used to tag post or as generally termed as auto suggestion.
tag-hinting.js is a Javascript library for embedding tah hinting to a webpage, it is very useful on blogs and forums where you tag post. I have created it in such a way that it is easy to use and understand. All you have to do is include the tag-hinting.js file in your webpage and write the following lines:
<script type="text/javascript">
arr = ['your','tag','values'];

and a div to show the hints.

<div id="hintwords" style="display: none;"></div>

The function which is to be called is:

hint(this, event)


  • Other style values can be added to above div.
  • id of the div has to be hintwords.
  • arr has to be declared and should be after file inclusion.
  • hint take only the specified arguments.
  • hint can work on keypress, keyup and keydown events.

There is a example file on this in repository on git. Pretty soon i’ll be sharing a library which interacts with database and can be helpful in searches.
