Now I'm using jQuery auto-complete, but I found a performance-related issue - if I input 'abc', it will be scanning by 'a', by 'ab', and by 'abc', at a once, how can I stop the previous 'a', 'ab' when ajax calling is doing searching by 'abc'?

I use jQuery DataTables, and want to do some searching like, I typed something to search (call search web method), and clicked button - 'Search' 3 times at a once, or changed search text just when I clicked 'Search', and raise a new search, how can I stop the previous useless ajax calling?
Hope I made myself clear.
Thanks in advance.
