many of u guys would already have noticed that now a days , on most of the websites , when some one sign in...as he puts his desired username in the textbox , the page shows that it is not available or it is available...without pushing any button etc..
and the second thing , when some one writes the password , on the same screen , it shows that password is weak or password is strong... i think it is done with php ... can some one give me a link to any page where i can access these scripts ? or some one can help me regarding this ?? Thanks for helping always.

Hooker is right. The first can be done with AJAX. The second (password strength) can be done with javascript, usually by calling a function with the onChange method.

As for AJAX - [a href=\"http://www.ajaxfreaks.com\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.ajaxfreaks.com[/a] is a good start...

AJAX would be the first option, in your case you'll want to focus on the "onKeyUp, onKeyDown, onBlur & onFocus" events as thats what you'll trap for JavaScript to send to the server via xmlhttpRequest.

The other alternative would be a SOAP interface of sorts.
