New option to set limit on items displayed

I have a few applications that use jQuery UI's autocomplete, but some of those fields have around 20-200 entries for autocomplete (people's names, for example).

For example, if I search for 'Jo', and there are 100 items that start with 'Jo', there's no way to limit the number of auto complete results so that it stop after displaying X number of items.

My request is to see if there could be an option when the autocomplete is initialized to set a maximum number of items displayed.

    source: data, //some valid data source that has a lot of autocomplete items
    maxItems: 10

The resulting autocomplete would only display 10 items, even if there are 30 items for a particular string. It will stop producing autocomplete rows after the 10th item.

Wrong component selected. Should be ui.autocomplete.

This isn't something we're going to place in the core file, but you can easily write this as an extension.

See our autocomplete extension docs -

Here's an example implementation -
