I am very new to Javascript and am trying to use the "Search multiple sources" example within the sanbox. I have added a service I would like to search by the plat name however it is not providing me a drop down list like in the example provided.


Below is the example. Has anyone come up with a solution to this or am I just overlooking something. Thanks
