JQuery UI Autocomplete callback

Is it possible to define a callback function to an input which JQuery Autocomplete plugin has been applied to.

I actually want to execute something on the onchange event, but, weirdly, it is triggered before the value is set. The input has a blank value when the onchage event is triggered.

Autocomplete has its own events that you should use.

Answer

Following js1568 answer. Here it is how.

$('selector').autocomplete({
   .
   .
   .
   change: function (event, ui) { 
       //your code
   },
   close: function (event, ui) { 
       //your code
   }
})

Use the close event too, if you want your code to be triggered after the user selects a value.
