G'day everyone.

I discovered Bonfire (0.8.3) a week or so ago while looking for an easy framework to create some simple web apps for my workplace. So far, it seems like just what I need - the module builder is amazing!

I have very little knowledge and experience with web technologies (consider me a noob), so I'm hoping someone here can lend me a hand.

I have a "create" view with a field for Employee ID. As soon as numbers are entered into the field, I'd like to perform a database query for the employee's name and display it on the page before I fill out the other fields and submit. I know that Bonfire has Javascript libraries built-in, but I have no idea how to use them to achieve my goal.

Can someone please point me in the right direction for some AJAX goodness?
