I have some auto_complete fields and belongs_to_auto_completer fields, and for some of them I would like the drop-down list of suggestions to appear as soon as the user focuses on the texbox.  I have tried setting min_chars => 0, but that does not work.  I have been using scriptaculous, but have installed jrails now, and would be happy to try that if someone can give me a complete solution.
