If you have an autocomplete and you have several text fields that have the other columns from the db. How do you autocomplete on a box and when you select it it fills in the other text fields with the rest of the data from the table?

OK, pardon my ignorance I guess. Should I do set an instance variable for the output then use that in the RJS to populate the rest of the text_fields with the other data? Seems that is the way to go. On May 31, 9:56 pm, Jonathan Rochkind <rails-mailing-l...@andreas-

Actually, sorry, that page indeed didn't answer your question. Try this one though. Googled for "rails autocomplete multiple values" http://www.wayne-robinson.com/journal/2006/11/11/m... This is not something I've done myself before though, sorry.

WOW, that is cool. I cannot thank you enough. I guess I will learn to google properly. Never though of asking for the obvious. DOH!! On Sun, May 31, 2009 at 10:22 PM, Jonathan Rochkind <
