#1266 closed defect (fixed)

ComboBox: Dropdown re-opens on keyboard selection

Reported by: moe Owned by: alex
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: Widgets Version: 0.3
Keywords: Cc: [email protected]…, [email protected]
Blocked By: Blocking:


To reproduce go to and use the first combobox (ComboBox? #1: inlined data, autocomplete=false)

  1. Enter the letter "a" (without quotes)
  1. Press the down-arrow twice ("Alaska" will be selected)
  1. Hit enter

Bug: "Alaska" is correctly filled into the textfield but the dropdown opens again and also displays Alaska as the only choice.
