Post you complete Code buddy :)
Sinisa Hajnal 12-Jan-15 5:51am
   
autocomplete probably handles keypress somehow and stops event propagation? Try using keydown or keyup and see if you get the event.

Alright what should i look for in my autocomplete.js?
Sinisa Hajnal 13-Jan-15 2:29am
   
You don't have to look for anything in autocomplete. You need to change your keypress to either keydown or keyup and see if it works.

If you absolutely have to change autocomplete, then look for keypress and some version of return false, preventDefault or cancelBubble in that handler and remove it so that the event bubbles to your handler.
