Please read TellTheDetails from the HowToAskQuestionsOnJavaRanch FAQ.

If nothing else, the "href" value should be prefaced with "#" as per the autocompleter tag docs:OGNL values created in the stack context (in other words, not pushed on to the stack itself) require the "#" prefix.

Have you confirmed that a request is being made (via Firebug, proxy, or other snooping mechanism)? Have you included the <sx:head> tag? If so, have you set "debug='true'" and are there any dojo errors?
I agree. Here's the link:
