Keywords: autocomplete, multiple, mustmatch, custom Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

its impossible to create an autocomplete field where multiple inputs and custom inputs are allowed.


$("#suggest3").autocomplete(cities, {

multiple: true,

mustMatch: false


from the original demo.

if the input is set to multiple and mustMatch false, its impossible to add a custom input cause while typing a seperator the "nearest" existing word is taken.

example, 'test,' is overwritten with 'Terrace Park,'
