How to use combobox when not filtering on first letters?


I’m using combobox to filter a list of options. The filter is not based on the first letter, but it oculd also be for example the second word.

In this example I’m searching for ‘b’. This shows all options containing B.

As you can see, the combobox is automatically completed, and the first ‘B’ I entered, is replaced with the first character of the first option (in this case: *). Since the * is not in the actual list, nothing is found anymore.

So my question is, how to disable this automatically updating of the input field?

Thanks in advance.

Could you add a complete demo (relating to a combo) or a part of its code to reproduce it?
