auto fill out address from MySQL database

Recommended Posts

 Having just barely got to grips with PHP, I have made a PHP app that can be used to fill out out forms,

at the moment it is a step by step process, loading a different function from a PHP file full of functions, loaded one at a time;

when filling in an address, it is possible to load an address previously used, this is simply done by reloading the same PHP function with a MySQL lookup,

it works great as is, but to make the app work more dynamically, I'd need to allow the user to fill in the whole form in one go.

However, to write the whole form in one go I'd need to load this address into a possibly half completed form...


As far as I can tell this isn't something suited to PHP, I believe JavaScript is the way to go;

however I have never worked with JavaScript before,

I was hoping someone could point me toward some tutorials and some relevant sample code for me to read through.
