Topic: Press Tab key after searching something in autocomplete does not select.

noveltytech priority asked 8 months ago


Expected behavior In autocomplete, when I search something and hover the searched item by arrow keys, and the I press the Tab key, the item needs to be selected as when I press Enter key. Actual behavior The item is selected when I press Enter key, but not when I press Tab. Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

@noveltytech This is not something we want to add as default behavior, but it looks interesting and we will probably add a new input that will enable this feature. I added this to our to-do list.

Hope this feature will be added soon.

I am disappointed this is not a default behavior considering it is a dropdown. Dropdowns are expected to be able to be navigated with tab+enter, or arrow keys+enter.

Hoping this is added soon.

@Mayerkel Navigation with arrow keys and enter should work correctly, did you have any problems with this feature? This thread is about auto-selection after tab-out from an opened dropdown.

We added this feature to autocomplete and select in v2.3.0. To enable it in your components, use [autoSelect]="true" input.
