Autocomplete Multiselect is a plugin for jQuery & jQuery UI that turns a standard text input filed into a tokenized autocomplete box. The plugin allows you to select multiple items from a dropdown suggest box and turns the selected items into tokens & tags in an input field.

How to use it:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.4/themes/ui-lightness/jquery-ui.css"/>
