CJuiAutoComplete (Dropdown connection)

Since CAutoComplete is being deprecated and CJuiAutoComplete is it’s replacement I would like to see some work done on the CJuiAutocomplete code to handle some of the normal actions that were done using CAutoComplete.

I would like to see a new Public Property added to the CJuiAutoComplete code to allow the connection to a dropdown (as seen here http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/#combobox). This would replace one of the functions used by CAutoComplete when using the "matchCase" option. After research it seems that this is the suitable replacement for CJuiAutoComplete. I have searched your forums for a proper easy solution to this and have yet to find one. If CJuiAutoComplete is going to be the replacement for CAutoComplete it will need some focus to help fill in the gaps.

Here is what I would see as the addition

  1. addition of a new public property called "sourceDropdown"

  2. The code for "sourceDropdown" would allow CJuiAutoComplete to connect to the referenced dropdown and function much the same way as shown on the JQueryUI site (http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/#combobox).

Please take this into consideration if you can, in the interim I am trying to find a programmer that can write a hack for me to allow this functionality.

That’ll be a good stuff!
