Prefill and duplicate entries

Hi all,

I am pre-filling the text box with comma separated values, and that works just find. However, if I type into the box the same value, it allows me to add it again. If I try to add it a third time, it will not do so.

So for instance, I prefill the text box with "red, green, blue". If I type "blue" into the box, I can add it again. If I type "blue" again, it says "No Results Found".

My question is: how can I prefill the text box and not allow it to duplicate anything that has been prefilled?

Thanks ahead of time!

    Ack. Never mind. I figured it out. Apparently, pre-filling the box with this string:

    "red, green, blue"

    is different than:


    Note that there shouldn't be any spaces after the comma.
