Topic: Autocomplete reset

Nairod priority asked 10 months ago


I have an autocomplete that is used to add multiple items to a list.

When the user selects an item, it automaticaly fills the input with the item title. I'd like instead to reset the input to blank after selection, just like it was before the search.

I tried


but this only triggers an empty search and does not change the input value.

And this has no effect

myAutocompleteInput.value = ''
