Tokenized Auto-Complete jQuery Plugin

This post is related to the tokenized auto-complete jQuery plugin available at http://loopj.com/2009/04/25/jquery-plugin-tokenizing-autocomplete-text-entry/.  It is a great plugin.  There are several comments in the discussion on that page regarding the following mods to the plugin. 

  • Use of local filtering instead of AJAX.  This makes sense when you have a smaller, pre-defined list of values to select from.

  • Only allowing a token to be selected if it is not already in the list of selected tokens.

It took me a few hours to update the plugin to implement these mods, so I wanted to share the results.

Here is a demo of the plugin modified to for the above items.  Ideally, the plugin would be updated to allow local and remote lookups.  However, I did not have time to implement in this manner, so my version solely works for local lookups.

Testimonials

  • This was by far the smoothest website redevelopment I have ever experienced. Modern Signal was a wonderful company to work with and we greatly value our working relationship. 

    - National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators

  • I love working with Modern Signal! Their CMS is very easy to use and they are incredibly responsive to questions or challenges I bring them.

    - NALP

  • We wouldn’t have gotten where we are today without your support over the years.  Modern Signal has always been a great partner to us.

    - Kirk Gillis, Managing Director at Zoom Tanzania

  • Modern Signal worked with us to understand our needs and figure out what solution would work best for us. Our Lighthouse CMS is perfectly suited to our website goals. When we later needed to modify the CMS, they again took the time to understand exactly what was  needed and then built that functionality rather than delivering a cookie cutter solution.   

    - Ecosystem Investment Partners

  • Modern Signal has a professional staff that was very responsive to our needs during all phases - scoping, developing, implementing and maintaining - of our project.  We have been pleased with their ability to deliver quality work on time and on budget. If given the opportunity, I would work with them again.
