Combobox/Autocomplete doesn't save value unless control loses focus

Reported by: vanboom Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.8.3
Component: ui.autocomplete Version: 1.8.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

To reproduce:

1) create a form with a combobox control

2) click the dropdown in the combobox control and select an item

3) click the form's submit button without tabbing out of the combobox

4) the value of the combobox will not be posted with the form

If you tab away from the combobox or click another control on the form so the combobox loses focus, then hit the submit button, it works perfectly.

To fix it, recommended to add this text block into widget->ui.combobox->autocomplete initialisation:



select: function(event, ui){


self._trigger("selected", event, {

item: select.find("[value='" + + "']")
