Bootstrap just implemented a neat autocomplete feature called typeahead. I am having trouble getting the appropriate value for the text input.
For instance, I might have the following:
If you only had 1 on the page you could try
$('ul.typeahead li.active').data('value'); but you may have have issues if there's more than 1 on a page.
I wonder if there's a reason why the input value is not set?
