javascript/html autocomplete textbox

I am developing a web page which has a requirement of many autocomplete textboxes. As I am new to javascript, it is very tough for me to make my own autocomplete textbox. So I have searched many examples from the internet, but they only work for a single textbox. This means I cannot use the same js file to make another autocomplete textbox. I didn't find any such examples on stackoverflow either. Can someone help me in this?


Use JQuery with the AutoSuggest plugin.

Include the JS libraries (see the documentation above), then do this in HTML:

<input type="text" class="autocomplete" name="n1" />
<input type="text" class="autocomplete" name="n2" />
<input type="text" class="autocomplete" name="n3" />
<input type="text" class="autocomplete" name="n4" />

Then add an Autocomplete to the CSS-class in your Javascript:

var data = "Core Selectors Attributes Traversing Manipulation CSS Events Effects Ajax Utilities".split(" ");
