The above example is an extremely simple usage — type a name, add a comma, and you can see the effect immediately. What’s even more awesome is that the plugin is keyboard-compatible, meaning you can press the arrow keys to move "over" or between items, and even delete them. Essentially you never have to use your mouse. Also of note is that Guillermo’s TextboxList class works with a bundled autocomplete plugin so you may quickly hook TextboxList in with your database.
