I am trying to work out two autosuggest text fields for a mobile application .
As given in the instructions I have given the two text boxes a sperate div and class tag
However my problem lies in appending the two search queries to the URL to make an ajax request to php
As far as I know $text = $_GET['q'] will retrieve only the first search query.
How do I get the second search query terms(It should work only if the first text box is filled out)
Please help me here,I am a jquery beginner and this is driving me CRAZY!!!

    This is what I've understood:

    -You have 2 autosuggest textboxes. You fill the first one and then you want to fill the second one filtering the options depending on the first autosuggest textbox.

    -You can try something like this:

    1-.Enable the first textbox and disable the second one.

    2-.Use 'selectionAdded' event to enable the second textbox when some element is added on the first one.

    3-.Use 'extraParams' parameter to add the data from the first textbox to the query of the second one. (ej: extraParams: '&textbox1='+$('#as-values-XXXXX').value();)

    4-.Use $text = $GET['q']; and $text2 = $GET['whatever_you_have_written_on_extraParams']; to retrieve both "textboxes".
