Ticket #7423 (closed bug: fixed)
Tab out of autocomplete with remote source can leave menu showing.
|Reported by:||sp||Owned by:|
This is reproducible using the remote data source example at: http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/remote.html
Steps to reproduce: 1) Go to example above. 2) Enter 'ro' into field. 3) At the moment you see the spinner, press the tab key
If you time it just right, you will see the menu pop up, but the focus will be somewhere else. Depending on the browser, it could be on the result field, or on the url in the browser window. This can lead to very strange behavior. If you have two autocompletes side-by-side, and you tab to the second one at the right moment, both will be showing their menus at the same time, with focus on the second field. The slower the data source, the more likely this will happen.
Expected: A check to make sure the field still has focus before showing the menu.
Reproduced in Safari and FireFox on Mac.
