Hello,

I am trying to use Autocompleter to search through different tables.
Hardcoding a specific table returns expected results from that table,
so the script is working as expected.

What i want to do is, use a select box with an 'onchange' event that
passes the chosen value to the Ajax.Autocompleter object. the value is
use to create a 'parameters: "id="+xxx'  string that should be used in
the Ajax.Autocompleter object.



Here is what i have:

            window.onload = function() {
                var cat_id=88;
              ac = new Ajax.Autocompleter("sterm",
                                     "autocomplete_choices",
                                     "/Property/search/
ajaxAutoComplete",
                                      { parameters:
'sid='+cat_id }  );

              alert('The value of ac parameters is: ' +
ac.options.parameters + ' and options are: ' + ac.options.toSource() +
'.');
            }

            function startAutocomplete(obj) {
                ac.options.parameters='sid='+obj.value;
              alert('The value of  sid is: ' + ac.options.parameters
+  '.');
              document.searchForm.sterm.value='';
           }


and on my select box: onchange="startAutocomplete(this)"

All the alert boxes are showing the correct information, but when I
type anything in the textfield to be 'autocompleted',  parameters:
'sid=88' is only being sent.
if i leave out the 'parameters: 'sid='+cat_id'  no parameters string
is sent at all.

Is there any way to change the value on the fly of the parameters
being sent?

I tried creating a new Ajax.Autocompleter onchange, but that only
created new ones ever time i changed the list but still keep the
original ones, so multiple instances of Ajax.Autocompleter were being
submitted.

Thanks.
