Is there a way in AJAX to have a check box or something similar to multiple select items in an autosuggest list / dropdown.. so that you can choose and process multiple items in an easier manner? if not, is there any other way to do this?

Hello, please see if the "Multiple Cities"/"Multiple Birds" examples will work, located at:
http://jquery.bassistance.de/autocomplete/demo/

If this is what you look for you could try that jquery plugin..

Multiple selections is a part of plain old HTML.
http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/forms/_SELECT_MULTIPLE.html

An interesting effect in http://jquery.bassistance.de/autocomplete/demo/ shows up if you enter "em" into the bird selector.  Since the "em" is used in an HTML "emphasis" tag in the backend script, it shows you a Grebe as one of the highlighted options ;-)
