The JavaScript Mention is an autocomplete-like control to tag or select a user/group from the suggestion list. The control opens the suggestion list when a user starts typing with the character ‘@’ in popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and more. It supports several out-of-the-box features: Data binding, grouping, UI customization, accessibility, and more.
