JQuery Autocomplete textbox on selected events


How do I fire another event after I have completed the selection on the textbox that has autocomplete. I want to show a valid div area based on the selected value.

Best Solution

Assuming you're talking about jQuery UI autocomplete, then like this:

$('#autocomplete').result(function(event, data, formatted) {
  alert('Someone picked a suggestion from the drop-down');

That is to say, the "result" method fires.
