The code can be used to implement autocomplete functionality on your website using jQueryUI. You can make that by providing local list array to the 'source' property of 'autocomplete' function or you can also load the list from the server by providing API URL path to 'source'. Remember that it will find 'label' and 'id' property by default to plot the list.
