@boxygen - you can use a software named ", Meld" ,it's available for Linux, windows and OS x. Can see the file differences if you compare the files with default core. You can get difference from it . Hope it helps you

Re: FA WITH AUTOCOMPLETE DOWNLOAD

@anoopmb - I have tested your auto complete.  Its working well. You have done a  great job. There is one suggestion from my side.
When It comes with large list of options in select. Like more than 1000 items in the list. It will freeze the system for a while and will go on.

So if possible rewrite it to perform Ajax call and get results from server. By default you can show 20, items in the list. Rest should not be added to the list. When user start typing the related items should show here.

Re: FA WITH AUTOCOMPLETE DOWNLOAD

The lists need special character handling so that names like "A & L" Foods appear properly.  One possible fix is to call

function decodeHtml(html) {
    var txt = document.createElement("textarea");
    txt.innerHTML = html;
    return txt.value;
}

where the code currently uses "selval" and

selectedoption.innerHTML= selectedoption.innerHTML.replace(/ /gi,' ');

which currently may not be doing anything because the browser just converts back.

Another minor problem is lost focus because FA does not expect to focus on a hidden variable, which in the new code has the old list name (the new list being named "name" + mselect).  I have a simple fix for this if you are interested.

Thanks for the contribution.  I already had autocomplete lists running on my site but I like yours better because it modular and non-invasive, so I replaced my code with yours.
