#9740 closed bug (duplicate)

Autocomplete doesn't keep its internal state consistent with jQuery val calls

Description (last modified by tj.vantoll)

Manipulating the contents of an input element with an autocomplete field attached using jQuery.val does not update the autocomplete's internal "term" variable.

JSFiddle here:

Reproduction steps:

  • Type "Hello" into the input box
  • Wait for the drop-down
  • Press enter
  • Value is cleared, drop-down disappears
  • Select the input box
  • Type "Hello" again (fairly quickly)


  • Drop-down appears with the correct options


  • Drop-down doesn't appear

It's because the check in the _searchTimeout (if(this.term !== this._value()) fails, as the internal value was not updated when the .val("") call was made.

Apologies, the ticket seems to has lost some of my formatting around the repro steps.
