I have a working copy of ajax.autocompleter, however, it still produces a static list of terms without the type ahead functionality.

Maybe I am missing something from the documentation but I assumed that if you add the paramName option to the method, this should select the terms according to the users input?

Example:
new Ajax.Autocompleter('text', 'div', 'terms.html', {paramName:text, minChars: 1, tokens: ';',}) ;

I must admit I am very new to Ajax and generally code in perl/CGI.

Many Thanks in advance.
