Help with javascript integration

    Hi,

    I'm looking for some assistance integrating some javascript which performs a UK postcode address lookup into a Quickbase form.

    See https://craftyclicks.co.uk/sample-code/client-side-javascript-postcode-lookup/

    Basically, the Quickbase native address lookup based upon postcode, isn't very effective in the UK - so I want to implement this solution, so that the user can enter a postcode, then select the address from a drop down as per their demo here:

    https://craftyclicks.co.uk/paf-database-products/free-postcode-lookup-demos/

    The code would then populate the respective address fields in Quickbase.

    I want to use this in lots of different places in my Quickbase apps, so the specific use case doesn't really matter - I just need the ability to be able to do this on both add and edit record forms, and populate the postcode and address fields on the form accordingly (as per the example)

    I'm hoping that this is a really simple task for someone who knows what they are doing!

    But if not, very happy to engage someone offline to help me with this.

    Thanks

    David

    Just wanted to say a massive thanks to Dan Diebolt who has helped me with this, inevitably making use of the image onload technique.

    This is simple to do but requires scripting. Feel free to contact me using the information in my profi9le:
