autoFocus=true causes one UX issue

Reported by: PierreFrancoisOptile Owned by: PierreFrancoisOptile
Priority: minor Milestone: none

I have integrated the autocomplete component for which I have set autoFocus=true in order to have the first item highlighted in the dropdown list of filtered results.

Quick note here: in general the "highlighted" item is selected when user clicks on it or press tab or enter.


When the first item is highlighted after expanding the dropdown, if the user presses Enter or Tab, the item is not selected

Steps to reproduce:

1. Click on the arrow to expand

2. Press tab

Expected result:

Highlighted item (in that case the first one) should become selected

Thank you for considering my request

What arrow? Autocomplete fields don't have arrows.
