Autocomplete an input field to enable users quickly finding and selecting some value, leveraging searching and filtering.

By giving an autocompleted field focus or entering something into it, the plugin starts searching for matching entries and displays a list of values to choose from. By entering more characters, the user can filter down the list to better matches.

This can be used to enter previous selected values, eg. for tags, to complete an address, eg. enter a city name and get the zip code, or maybe enter email addresses from an addressbook.

[Usage example]
|id|
( html textInput )
; id: (id := html nextId)
; script: ( html jQuery new script: [ :s | s << ( s jQuery id: id ) autocomplete data: anOrderedCollectionOfStrings] )
[Usage example Ajaxified]
|id|
( html textInput )
; id: (id := html nextId)
; script: ( html jQuery new script: [ :s | s << ( s jQuery id: id ) autocomplete data: anOrderedCollectionOfStrings ; useAjax: true with: s ] )
