Duplicate/merged results in dropdown

Jul 31, 2012 at 12:25 AM

Hi, got a conundrum that I can't seem to work out. Basically we have a typeahead box that starts querying after the 3rd character is entered. What's happening is the results of each search are being combined and I can't figure out how to stop it. I've tried forcing the PHP code building the JSON results to clear each time but it still happens.

I can see each individual query fire in Firebug and each only returns it's designated 5 results but when the list finishes drawing there might be 10 items in it.

Example.. Searching for Bill

First query select top 5 where %bil%..   json result is correct.

Drop down displays results.

Second query select top 5 where %bill%... json is also correct.

Drop down "might" display all 10 results. Previous 5 plus this 5, but it doesn't do it every time.

Any thoughts??????
