at the begining - soryr for my english ;)
I've got big JSON file with tags - about 1000 entries. I include this file by:

          selectedItemProp: "name", 
          searchObjProps: "name", 
          minChars: 2, 
          asHtmlID: "tags"

And it is a problem - because JSON file with query string is includes many times (depends on typing speed) - i chose 6 tags and the script generates ~400kb
I try sometching like this:
`var data = $.getJSON('autosuggest/data.php'); $("#tagInput").autoSuggest(data,{

but it doesn't work ...
is it possible to include the JSON file not as many times as in the first example above - but only once per script ?
Thanks for help, and sorry for my bad english :),

    some problems with formatting:
    first code:
    $("#tagInput").autoSuggest('autosuggest/data.php',{selectedItemProp: "name", searchObjProps: "name", minChars: 2, asHtmlID: "tags" });

    second code:
    var data = $.getJSON('autosuggest/data.php'); $("#tagInput").autoSuggest(data,{ selectedItemProp: "name", searchObjProps: "name", minChars: 2, asHtmlID: "tags" });

    Hey Kuba,

    I was having the same problem as you, ended up partly using your solution with $.getJSON, here is what I came up with. I'm sure you have it worked out by now but it might help someone else if they come across this problem.

    $.getJSON('/tags.json', function(data) {
      $('li#step_tag_list_input input').autoSuggest(data, {selectedItemProp: 'name', searchObjProps: 'name'});
