Hi, I have an autocomplete code as attached. The problem is that it picks up the match anywhere in the string. How can I change the code to pick the match staring from the beginning of the string?

Eg; search 11 needs to pick up 11237 and not 198112. Thank you for the help.

<script type="text/javascript">
$().ready(function() {
	
	$("#account").autocomplete("account.php", {
		width: 260,
		matchContains: true,
		mustMatch: true,
		selectFirst: true
	});
	
	$("#account").result(function(event, data, formatted) {
		$("#account").val(data[1]);
	});
});
</script>

you have nothing to do with Javascript. you must work on your script "account.php"

in your SQL query, instead : '%$q%'
use : '$q%'
