when i submit my autosuggested form, the original id of the input field is't listed in the post variables. Instead my asHtmlID including as-values- is send. Like this i cannot work with the sent variables. How do i fix this?

    That is correct, the variable is:

    as-values- + [asHtmlID]

    I don't understand why you can't work with that.

    Because I want the autosuggestes values added to the value of the original input field. So that the submitted variable is the id from the input.

    What I don't understand is why you can't change the variable id in your processing page/script.

    If that is not a possibility, try changing line 85 (on my script) from:

    var values_input = $('<input type="hidden" class="as-values" name="as_values_'+x+'" id="as-values-'+x+'" />');


    var values_input = $('<input type="hidden" class="as-values" name="'+x+'" id="'+x+'" />');

    exactly this was my problem, i couldn't change the processing script, because i would have had to do changes in a core module of a cms. so you saved my life. thx.
