Autocomplete types

    When creating an add-on, in the template one can use the Autocomplete code so that usernames can be selected from a dropdown in a form.

    There appears to be two types of Autocomplete:

    1) The one used in the search where more than one username can be selected and submit is required
    2) The one used in the find members search where a one name is selected and is auto-submitted

    The first type always puts in a comma and a space after you select a username. Is there an option to remove this comma and space? The reason I ask is that in my add-on only one username is allowed.

    I know I could use the second type, but that automatically runs the code once a name is selected, I don't want this behavior as I would like the user to have to press the Submit button.

    Thank you.

    Use AcSingle:
    <input type="text" name="username" id="ctrl_new_user" class="textCtrl AutoComplete AcSingle" />
    Bugfix and AndyB like this.
