Thanks for your comment.
I need to think on this on this one.
Overriding the tab behaviour might not be something user wants as the "tab" key is used to move on 'focusable' HTML elements. However, I think you might be right if the user hits the tab when a hint is displayed... again I will think on this one...
cheers

If this could be implemented I would use this library in a snap.

What I'm thinking adding an option to use tab autocomplete or space autocomplete depending what user want's.

E.g.

I type "I"
Suggestion "I need code"
Input is locked with tab
User tabs and autocompletes
Tab is unlocked

So basically when user is starting to type TAB is locked in that input.

Looking forward with this library very, very promising.

Fair enough. I will take a look.
As said, it seems a very reasonable request.

+1. This is extra important when there is only one suggestion, I can't find a way to do auto-complete then. Tab, space or enter are the natural alternatives. Ctrl+space might work as an unobtrusive approach, but few would realize that it can be used.

I vote for tab completion, and a possibility to disable it for one keypress (and temporarily remove the auto-complete proposal) by clicking ESC.

I am going to upload complete.ly.1.0.1 This new version will have only one change: the ability to handle 'tabs'. Its behaviour should be as discussed. If you guys are okay with it I will then close the issue.

tabs feature makes it more intuitive. thanks.

one more thing, what if i have to edit or make a new choice after tabbing. currently, i have to delete the whole sentence then start over again. is there a better way?

Hi Ariun, I am not sure if I understand your new question. Once you make a choice you could use the back-space until new options are available. For instance you choose 'apple' then you press backspace 'appl' and again ('app') and again and once you get 'ap' the option 'apricot' will be also available.
Is not that what you are talking about ? Please open a new issue if you feel like and try to describe it as accurately as you can. cheers
