Can the Kendo UI Multiselect possibly select the "active" item when tab is pressed? It currently does this for the enter key

Can the Kendo UI Multiselect possibly select the "active" item when tab is pressed? It currently does this for the enter key.

 

We are building a Typescript Create React App application, and we would really like to be able to allow our users to type a partial entry and then allow tab to complete the selection and move on to the next input.

 

I tried to make it have this behavior but it became a fairly large mess and seems like it could be facilitated in the source code with less mess.

Even possibly just exposing access to more events would make it easier, like an onKeyDown, but that would still require some additional code to figure out what the current active item is.

Currently using these below, not sure what "Version" below in this form those belong to so I just guessed:

"@progress/kendo-react-inputs":"^3.9.0"

"@progress/kendo-react-dropdowns":"^3.9.0"

Hello, Steven,

Thank you for the feedback.

I directly transferred this to an official public feature request where the community can vote for it and we will plan it accordingly.

I also added your vote for convenience.

Thanks for the reply,

 

I took a look at the examples and got something working, but it is still extremely custom and hacky.  I think many others would like some sort of feature like this.  I will just continue on with what I have for now, and I hope this feature request makes it as a candidate for development.

 

Thank you,

Hello, Steven,

Thank you for the details.

I can suggest checking the following forum post on a similar subject that has an example as well:

We will consider adding it to the code based on the community feedback.
