I am using twitter bootstrap 3 to produce a project. Everything is working well so far and i've just started working on the forms within the program..

I'm okay with the standard controls within bootstrap but i'd like to have extra features such as the jQueryUI datepicker and a dynamic combobox.

What's the best approach here ? Am i better off using the autocomplete within jQueryUI and trying to intigrate it somehow ?

Idealling, i would like to use dropdowns quite often within the program. Each dropdown will be populated by a sql statement..

Any help would be appreciated

thanks

The drop downs they use http://getbootstrap.com/components/#btn-dropdowns because it works best with mobile.  Otherwise, you can simply use the jquery ui component you want and only need to install what you need and not the entire ui js file.

When I started using bootstrap3, I went with http://twitter.github.io/typeahead.js/ for autocomplete.
