I am trying to get more out of auto_complete than it apparently was
designed to deliver.
My problems seem to be two fold.
1 - I use aggregations on
names… :first_name, :middle_initial, :last_name and then aggregate
them using a composed_of :wholename thing
auto_complete_for seems to be wired to only use table columns directly
and gags on the aggregate form.
2 - foreign table columns - auto_complete_for seems to be unusable for
obtaining matching values from a column in another table but I haven’t
fully explored this since I was trying to get the aggregation per above
and finally stayed within table and found that aggregations didn’t work
period and when I checked out the api, I sort of knew why.
So I ask…is there an auto_complete plugin/gem that I can’t seem to
find that is like auto_complete on steroids?
