Topic: Select Field not refreshing after being changed from javascript

dwilbur priority asked 10 months ago

Expected behavior

When you use javascript to reset the value of a select field to the first option, it would show on the screen that the selected field of the select element is the first option.

Actual behavior

Value of select field is reset but the window still displays the previously selected field so now the select element's value is the value of the first option but what is actually displayed on screen is still the previously selected element

There is a difference between the select element used for initiation and the select component. You need to use select setValue method to change the value. Overwriting select element value is not a correct approach.
