How to get suggestions while type into the field?

In jQuery UI the Autocomplete API provides suggestions while you type into the field. The data source is a simple JavaScript array, provided to the API using the source-option. Autocomplete enables users to quickly find and select from a pre-populated list of values as they type, leveraging searching and filtering.

Any field that can receive input can be converted into an Autocomplete, namely, <input> elements, <textarea> elements, and elements with the contenteditable attribute.

When typing in the autocomplete field, the plugin starts searching for entries that match and displays a list of values to choose from. By entering more characters, the user can filter down the list to better matches.

$( ".selector" ).autocomplete({
  source: [ "c++", "java", "php", "coldfusion", "javascript", "asp", "ruby" ]
