Topic: Add Ability to programmatically Blur MDBAutocomplete

NoahConn pro asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior

I am programmatically populating MDBAutocomplete with data when the component is mounted.

I have the ability to close the drop with: autocomplete.value.close()

But this leaves the component's input field still focused and using: autocomplete.value.blur() throws an error: autocomplete.value.blur is not a function

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Hello! You can remove the focus by finding the input via querySelector or getElementById and then using blur, for example:


I hope it will be useful. Best Regards!

Thank you for the response, unfortunately blurring the input this way leaves the border styling in place, which makes the input appear to be focused to the user. I'm looking for a way to revert the input border back to its blurred state.

I made a snippet where on enter you can blur the autocomplete input. Could you check if my solution works for you? If it still doesn't work could you recreate that in a snippet?
