Topic: Autocomplete - unable to select text in input by Shift+Home

meesha81 priority asked 1 month ago


Expected behavior In the form input with autocomplete you should be able to select text by Shift+Home.

Actual behavior Type some text into autocomplete. Press Shift+Home, text is not selected. It is interesting that your implementation selects the text in the input with autocomplete on https://mdbootstrap.com/ (search input)

Hi, I have tried 7.3.1, but there is no change, Shift+Home/Shift+End do not select text... am I right? I have updated my snippet and it is also not working as snippet.

Okey, so it is propably not correct behavior, because if you want to select text (home + shift) and rewrite by new query, it is impossible to do it. I think that there is no reason for blocking shift+home (home works, but why shift doesen't?)

Our navbar is not a autocomplete component. It's custom component written for our own use so it works differently.
