This is how the auto-completion works. If you want to keep the $name in the
textfield for the user, you should convert it to $id during form validation,
much like if a user enters an aliased path, we would want to convert it
On display, you can re-covert it back to $name, much like we would use

I have an autocomplete field picking-up text suggestion from an array($id =>
When I start typing in the text-field the list of suggestions is properly
showing the values (names) of the array.
When I select a name however the key ($id) is shown in the textfield.
The only way to show the name in the textfield is to populate the array as
($name => $name).
But then $name is returned on submission while I need the key.
Am I missing something? Thanx
