Category: ComboBox
Type: Bug Report
Select triggers even whenever I click off the box, not when a click an item as expected

As per I am expecting that select does not fire when the user enters text but does not select an item from the list. This is consistent with your other widgets like AutoComplete.


However as seen in this dojo select triggers whenever I enter text and click off the box instead of only when I click an item in the combobox.


How to reproduce:

  • Open above Dojo
  • Click in the combobox and type some text.
  • Do not click on an item in the list and instead just click anywhere else on the page.
  • Check console and you will see select has been printed.


If you need any other help, let me know.


Kind Regards,



PS Im forced to select a browser but this is the same across both chrome and firefox.
