#5992 closed bug (duplicate)

autocomplete - not doing ajax request due to backslash or delete key

Component: ui.autocomplete Version: 1.8.4
Keywords: Cc: [email protected]
Blocked by: Blocking:


I'm using autocomplete with ui 1.8.4 and core 1.4.2

The use-case is the following:

with minLenght:1

1) Type a
2) the <ul> with suggested results comes out, that's ok
3) press <backspace> or highlight the text just entered and then press <cancel>
4) Type a
5) Noting happens

I think the problem is what happens at line 4817 of jquery-ui-1.8.4.custom.js

// only search if the value has changed
if ( self.term != self.element.val() ) {

1) type a, term == undefined, self.element.val()==a, ok, do the search and set term=a
2) press backspace or delete what is within input, the "if" returns true, the search is invoked but since

''.length == 0

, it does not comply with minLength value, preventing the search and NOT setting term = empty string.
3) type a, term == a, self.element.val == a, the "if" returns false, doing anything.

I think the problem could be solved setting term to the value typed even if the minLenght is not reached.

I'm using that version of code, but it DOES NOT work. The problem does still exist.

Duplicate of #5922.

You say "I'm using that version of code" but I'm not sure what that means since you also say you're using 1.8.4, which has the bug.
