Clear search text in a combobox

Search Text in combobox is not getting clear in following scenarios.

1. Open combo box and type something in search. Without selecting an item focus out. On Focus out, Search text is shown as selected.

OnChange event of combo box is not getting fired in this case as item is not selected.

2. Search in combox box and select an item. Next time when opens, it is showing items related to search text.


Please help to get this resolved.

Re: Clear search text in a combobox

Hi Levina, do you see an item being selected when you focus out of the Combo box?  I believe the search text remains, but the item is not selected (doesn't have a box around it).

Hello suds,

I'm sorry for a late reply. If I understand your question correctly, the described behaviour is by design. The search text should not be cleared in those 2 cases. This is to hint the user the relevance of displayed (filtered) results.
