I am using jquery autocomplete.
How can I allow only a selection from the choices be allowed? you should not be able to type something in by yourself in that box?

This is the autocomplete code. what do I have to add to make sure the only value in the box is one that comes from the autocomplete values?

    $("#GoingTo").autocomplete({
                source: "states.php",
                minLength: 1,
           select: function(event, ui) {
             $('#course_val').val(ui.item.id);
          }
            });
