link Autocomplete

link Added autoFocus option

(#7032) A new option has been added to automatically focus the first item in the search results. This reduces the number of key presses needed to select an item from the list and makes selecting the first result as easy as tabbing away from the field once the menu is displayed. This option is off by default, to turn it on, simply set the autoFocus option to true.

$( "#autocomplete" ).autocomplete({
source: [ "hello", "world" ],
autoFocus: true
