I am looking for some sort of jQuery typeahead solution which allows a user to select options from a list but only when they enter a certain trigger character and it should also allow multiple values.

For example:


User types re and nothing should happen as it requires [ to trigger

User types [re and then both red and green should be shown as options

Once the user either selects the option from the list or types it and closes with a ] then they should be able to enter more text including another option and another and so on. So if they then type [bl it should show them blue as an option and allow them to choose it etc.

So the end result might look like "re [red] yellow green [blue]" for example - the result is shown simply as text in a textbox so there is no need for any data extraction afterwards

    Typeahead needs to be patched for it. Is your [ fixed static character or that too is configurable plus can it be string or just a single character?
