How to get the value ??

I wrote a small helper which receive a parameter "f", as following:

def cno_helper(f)
    concat "<INPUT id='" + f + "' size='13' type='text' />"
    concat "<div class='auto_complete' id='" + f + "_auto_complete'"
    concat
"style='display:none;border:none;background-color:white;height:150px;overflow:none;cellpadding:0;cellspacing:0'>"
    concat "</div>"

    concat auto_complete_field( f,
          :frequency => 0.4,
          :min_chars => 2,
          :method => 'GET',
          :url=>{:action=>'autocomplete_vc_cno'},
          :tokens => ',')
end

It generate the code I want, and the auto_complete_field is working.
The program is I don't know how to pass the current value of the input
field to the :action 'autocomplete_vc_cno'.

Any idea? Thanks in advance.

You can send it as a :with param.

concat auto_complete_field( f,

It should be:

concat auto_complete_field( f,
           :frequency => 0.4,
           :min_chars => 2,
           :method => 'GET',
           :url=>{:action=>'autocomplete_vc_cno'}, :with => " 'val=' +
document.getElementById('" + f + "').value ",
           :tokens => ',')

Thanks!
