asked on

get jquery ui autocomplete selected id and save in hidden field then display on page on button click

I have this jquery  UI autocomplete.
http://jsfiddle.net/DLLVw/

Is there a way to get the selected id from the autocomplete but don't display it on select event.

Instead show the selected value when I click the button.

So for example if I pick Algeria from the autocomplete. It will display Algeria in the textbox and the id 18 in another textbox.

Is it possible to save the selected id in a hidden field and then when I click the button display the value that was stored in hidden field on the page?
