When I specify local data array such as:

data: { results: my_array, text: "name" }

and when I'm search for items, in the results I can see found items which can be selected, but their parent names are not displayed. The markup for parents look like this:

It's my guessing search locally doesn't consider using an alternative key (other than "text") to display parent's name, but still tries to use "text" key which is not being used in this case.


please create a jsfiddle

Try to type in "Item 2.1" and you'll see "Item 2" (parent) is not in the list but it's HTML markup is.
