I have code:



<title>IE + autocomplete</title>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1251">


<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0">

<script src="/js/contrib/jquery.js"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/js/contrib/jquery-plugins/jquery-autocomplete/jquery.autocomplete.css" type="text/css" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/contrib/jquery-plugins/jquery-autocomplete/jquery.autocomplete.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/contrib/jquery-plugins/jquery-autocomplete/lib/jquery.bgiframe.min.js"></script>


$(document).ready(function() {

$("#search_client").autocomplete('/mod/api/client_manager/client_search/', {

matchContains: true,

minChars: 1,

autoFill: true,

formatItem: function(row) {

return row[0]+" "+row[2];


formatResult: function(row) {

return row[0];





<form autocomplete="off">

<input type="text" name="clnt_query" id="search_client" value="" size="50">


<div id="search_log"></div>


on page /mod/api/client_manager/client_search/?q=sd

I get result:





It works in FF but not in IE. IE doesn't give me any error message.

The code you provided above isn't adequate for a test case because it doesn't include the plugins or describe which versions you used. To get started I would post a question on the jQuery Plugins forum. If the general consensus is that the problem you are seeing is a bug in jQuery, reopen the ticket and post a test case here.

Is this the autocomplete plugin that you are using?

If you are using jQuery 1.3, double-check that the plugin has been tested with 1.3.

If it is a problem with the autocomplete plugin, please open a ticket on the plugins bug tracker.
