View Full Version : Issue with Clearing out an value in Editable Combo box in Internet Explorer

23 May 2014, 11:32 AM

I am having an editable combo box where a value is pre-selected on page load. Now when I am trying to clear out that value by highlighting the whole value and pressing delete button, the value disappears but whn I move my mouse to some other area in the page and click, this value appears again selected in the combo box. I tried this using backspace as well and I am having the same issue. When I use backspace to clear some part of the value and then highlight the remaining part and press delete button, it removes the value and doesn't appear again selected. Strange but this is happening only in IE 9. It works fine in Firefox. I have not tried this on other versions of IE. Is this a bug or is there a way I can fix this issue.

Hi Scott, Thanks for the link. I am able to fix my issue with the help of an example code you provided. ForceSelection is the one that is causing the issue for the combo box. Now its working fine. Thanks...
