how i only want nonstop00000 paste it into input box when i select the 1st value

here is my javascript

$(document).ready(function () {
source: function(request,response) {
url: '@Url.Content("~/UserManagement/AutoCompleteUser")/',
type: "POST",
dataType: "json",
data: { term: request.term },
success: function (data) {
response($.map(data, function (item) {
return [{ label: item.Username + " | " + item.FullName, value: }];
messages: {
noResults: "", results: ""

if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(searchString))
user = user.Where(s => s.Username.Trim().Contains(searchString.Trim())
|| s.FullName.Trim().Contains(searchString.Trim()));

public JsonResult AutoCompleteUser(string term)
var result = (from r in db.UserTables
where ((r.Status == "Active") && (r.Username.ToLower().Contains(term.ToLower()) || (r.FullName.ToLower().Contains(term.ToLower()))))
select new { Username = r.Username, FullName = r.FullName }).Distinct();
return Json(result);

here is my view

<div class="col-lg-9 col-md-9 col-sm-9 col-xs-12 search-panel">
@using (Html.BeginForm("Index", "UserManagement", FormMethod.Get))
<div class="input-group form-group ui-widget">
@Html.TextBox("id", ViewBag.CurrentFilter as string, new { @class = "form-control autocomplete", @placeholder = "Search for..." })
<span class="input-group-btn">
<input type="submit" value="Search" class="form-control autocomplete " />


To achieve this you can use the select event to amend the value to be placed in to the input. Try this:

    // your settings...
    select: function(e, ui) {
