    is there a way to tie autocomplete to listview results? What I'm trying to do it to use autocomplete search box, and as results come in, populat listview.

    Hello John,

    This functionality is not supported out of the box, however you could achieve similar behavior using the Autocomplete's ul property which is holding the available suggestions. You could attach a handler to the input element's keydown event and list display the Autocomplete suggestions, for example:
    $("#autocomplete").on("keydown", function(e){

    The default delay for displaying the suggestions popup is 200ms, so I've added a setTimeout function with the a slightly longer delay to ensure the popup is indeed displayed.
