#8998 closed enhancement (wontfix)

ComboBox: auto-complete broken after backspace?

Description

In test_ComboBox.html on the second example (the autocomplete example):

  1. Type "co" (auto-completion set to Colorado)
  2. Backspace

I think at this point the auto-completion should be set to California, so that tabbing away enters the value of "California", but it's not set to anything.

Maybe there's a reason for this behavior?

If you type another letter (like "a") then auto-completion is working again.

This was a specific design change made by alex in [721] and [731]. Bill, please indicate that you want the change undone by assigning this ticket to me.

When autoComplete=true, then text that is appended to the user's text is highlighted. Thus a backspace would remove the highlighted text. With this proposed change, the text just removed would reappear and thus make it difficult to actually backspace over user text.
