Selectmenu ignores title attribute

Reported by: m_berling Owned by: fnagel
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.12.0
Component: ui.selectmenu Version: 1.11.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Given the fact that the selectmenu widget is said to "''Duplicate(s) and extend(s) the functionality of a native HTML select element to overcome the limitations of the native control''", I think it should support the "accesskey" attribute of the original select element to provide the usage of a shortcut key.

Currently I'm using a workaround similar to:

var jSelect = jQuery("#myselect");

    .attr("accesskey", jSelect.attr("accesskey"))
  .attr("accesskey", "");

NB: Regarding the siblings() method, the above code is correct only in case there is only one selectmenu in the current DOM hierarchy level, of course. (Which, in case of my web application, is always true.)

Here's an extension that does this: I'm torn as to whether this should be integrated into the core widget. Thoughts anyone else?
