I'm new to developing in ArcGIS / ESRI. But, I've used the REST service at with suggest?text= to develop a Windows app that shows up to 5 address candidates at a time as a user types more of the address like the Geocoder widget.

But I can't find a JavaScript API method to do the same thing. But I see the Geocoder widget has the same functionality, but I'd like to do what it does but in my own code. What method does it call behind the scenes?

Does anyone know how it can be done? A simple example in code would be really helpful!

Thanks in advance!
