Topic: Searchable Select, one too many keystrokes

kgp43 free asked 3 years ago



I'm using the Searchable Select (pro) menu, that let my users search for items in the menu.Quite a few users have been complaining about they have to type the first letter twice, since the first keystroke activate the search field - but it does not insert the keystroke.

Example:I need to search for "denmark"I have to type "ddenmark"

Is it possbible to make the frist keystoke add to the search field, at the same time it activate the search field?

<select class="mdb-select md-form " id="inputSR{{$i}}" searchable="Search here.." name="softreserves[]">
<option value="" disabled selected>Search or select item</option>

@foreach($items as $item)
    <option value="{{ $item->id }}" data-secondary-text="Dropped by: {{ $item->boss }}">{{ $item->name }}</option>
