ComboBox not detecting event

It could be a bug in my code but I doubt it… :wink: I am finding that under the following circumstance you can edit the value in the combo box with out it being detected. Same behavior in ie8 and ff 3.6

Say you have an editable combo box with one entry.

    Select that entry.  Ex.   SELECTION1
    Now place the cursor after the first character in the selection, the dropdown appears. 
    Type a few characters after the selection in combo Ex. SELECTION1AAAAAA
    The dropdown is still visible, click anywhere on the dropdown but not on an actual    selection, in other  words the [b]white space in dropdown[/b]. 
    Then when you click anywhere else on the page and the dropdown looses focus none of the following events fire:


    and you are left with a new value entered in the combobox that you have not detected the change

If anyone else has noticed this or knows of a fix it is of course much appreciated

We could not manage to reproduce the problem locally.

Do you use the latest combo version ? Please provide the sample to recreate the problem locally

I am using the lastest version of the code. I originally had an earlier version when I first saw this behavior and I downloaded the lastest version and it still functions the same.

We have reproduced the issue and modified the dhtmlxcombo.js - attached file. With this file the combo won’t lose focus when you click on an empty space of the list. (9.82 KB)

Working Great. Thanks… will definitely be purchasing license…if I can ever get this project completed and implemented… :smiley:
