Topic: Select dropdown with multiselect works fine on desktop but closes on each option selection on mobile devices

NitinMistry free asked 3 years ago

*Expected behavior:*Dropdown should allow user to make multiple selections and then close when user clicks/taps outside the control.

*Actual behavior:*Works as expected on desktop browsers. On mobile browsers the dropdwon closes after each option selection. Therefore user needs to re-open the dropdown to make multiple option selections.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) Please view the below link on desktop browser (Chrome) as well as any mobile browser (iOS/Android). Notice on desktop the dropdown remains open allowing the user to make multiple selections while on mobile browser the dropdown closes upon each option selection although the dropdown has been created with multiselect.
