.ui-widget-content .ui-state-focus {} instead of &.ui-state-hover, &.ui-state-active{} worked for me (outside of the .ui-autocomplete)

I'm still using Bootstrap 2 but now with Rails 4.2.1, jQuery-UI 1.11.4, and rails-jquery-autocomplete 1.0.0, not rails3-jquery-autocomplete. The menu items are no longer wrapped in "a" tags, and the active item gets a ui-state-focus class. Seems to be working correctly under Firefox after changing the last two blocks as follows:

.ui-menu-item {
  display: block;
  padding: 3px 15px;
  clear: both;
  font-weight: normal;
  line-height: 18px;
  color: #555555;
  white-space: nowrap;

  &.ui-state-focus {
    color: #ffffff;
    text-decoration: none;
    background-color: #0088cc;
    border-radius: 0px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 0px;
    -moz-border-radius: 0px;
    background-image: none;
  }
}

@paseto I can't get yours to work for me either. Still stuck on the default css except for the width seemed to have worked. Otherwise everything is the ugly default css. CSS is so confusing sometimes.

This is good. Saved me allot of work; however, I needed to bump .ui-autocomplete Z-index way up to get the drop down to show.

Thanks! for the last two blocks in .ui-autocomplete, here is my modification which works in my local Chrome

.ui-menu-item {
    display: block;
    padding: 3px 15px;
    clear: both;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 18px;
    color: #555555;
    white-space: nowrap;

    .ui-state-active, .ui-state-hover {
      color: #ffffff;
      text-decoration: none;
      background-color: #0088cc;
      border-radius: 0;
      -webkit-border-radius: 0;
      -moz-border-radius: 0;

Minimal, out-of-the-box that mimics the drop-down styling while using Less...

.ui-autocomplete {
	.dropdown-menu;
}
.ui-state-hover,
.ui-state-active,
.ui-state-focus {
	a {
		text-decoration: none;
		color: @dropdown-link-hover-color;
		background-color: @dropdown-link-hover-bg;
		cursor: pointer;
	}
}

Thanks!

This kind of works on my project. The selected item it get draw outside of the box and once the selection is made the string
stays on the screen. (rails 4.2.6, botstrap, simple_form)
Any suggestions ?

None of these seem to work as intended with the newest version of jquery-ui (1.12.1). They work with 1.11.4 though. If you're using rails, you can see how your gem matches up with the jquery-ui version here: https://github.com/jquery-ui-rails/jquery-ui-rails/blob/master/VERSIONS.md

@em77 is right

Now this combination of selectors works (for me at least):

  .ui-menu-item-wrapper {
    display: block;
    padding: 3px 15px;
    clear: both;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 18px;
    color: #555555;
    white-space: nowrap;

    &:hover, &.ui-state-focus, &.ui-state-active {
      color: #ffffff;
      text-decoration: none;
      background-color: #0088cc;
      border-radius: 0px;
      -webkit-border-radius: 0px;
      -moz-border-radius: 0px;
      background-image: none;
    }
  }

On:

gem 'jquery-rails', '4.3.1'
gem 'jquery-ui-rails', '5.0.5' # which installs jquery-ui 1.11.4

The following worked for me perfectly:

.ui-autocomplete {
  position: absolute;

  left: 0;
  z-index: 1000;
  float: left;
  display: none;

  border-color: #ccc;

  box-shadow: 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
  -webkit-background-clip: padding-box;
  -moz-background-clip: padding;
  background-clip: padding-box;
  *border-right-width: 2px;
  *border-bottom-width: 2px;

  .ui-menu-item {

    padding: 3px 15px;
    clear: both;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 18px;
