I'm looking into using jQuery autocomplete plug-in to implement user lookup by first or last name. It looks like by default autocomplete looks up words by character sequence no matter its occurrence in a word. So if you have data such as:
'as' you will get all three. I would like it to at least match beginning of the word. So in above example you get only
'asp'. Is there a way to configure jQuery Autocomplete plug-in to do this?
Ultimately it would be even better to match by beginning of first or last name like it is in Gmail.
