dijit.form.Select: error if keypress and less than two options

Reported by: Stanislav_Strelchik Owned by:

Blocked By: Blocking:


We have a dijit.form.Select on our form. When it contains less than 2 options than key press leads to an error:

For example, in FF 17.0.10 esr:

Timestamp: 10/30/2013 5:50:12 PM
Error: TypeError: item is null
Source File:
Line: 285

This error occurs inside a loop in _keyboardSearch function:

  var rc = this._keyboardSearchCompare(currentItem, searchString);
  if(!!rc && numMatches++ == 0){
    matchedItem = currentItem;
  if(rc == -1){ // priority match
    numMatches = -1;
  currentItem = this._getNextFocusableChild(currentItem, 1);
}while(currentItem != stop);

It happens when this._getNextFocusableChild(currentItem, 1) returns null and on the next iteration of the loop calls this._keyboardSearchCompare(currentItem, searchString) with null currentItem.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open attached sample.
  2. Select 'Tennessee' option.
  3. Press a few keys.

We just ran across this one too: TypeError?: 'null' is not an object (evaluating '_14.domNode')

We should investigate and fix in 1.12 if possible. Pull requests are welcome of course!

Ticket planning... move current 1.13 tickets out to 1.15 to make it easier to move tickets into the 1.13 milestone.
