module AutoComplete
def self.included(base)
base.extend(ClassMethods)
end
#
# Example:
#
# # Controller
# class BlogController < ApplicationController
# auto_complete_for :post, :title
# end
#
# # View
# <%= text_field_with_auto_complete :post, title %>
#
# By default, auto_complete_for limits the results to 10 entries,
# and sorts by the given field.
#
# auto_complete_for takes a third parameter, an options hash to
# the find method used to search for the records:
#
# auto_complete_for :post, :title, :limit => 15, :order => 'created_at DESC'
#
# For help on defining text input fields with autocompletion,
# see ActionView::Helpers::JavaScriptHelper.
