#3540 new defect

Down arrow key should select only entry in suggested tag key/value list

Reported by: dankarran Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: arrow keys, usability Cc:


When in the advanced mode in Potlatch 2, if you type part of a key (or value) and Potlatch comes back with a single suggestion, it's not possible to highlight that suggestion using the down key, unlike when there are multiple entries.

For example, try typing 'a' as a key, and you'll be able to navigate through 'aeroway' and 'amenity', but if you type 'na', you can't select 'name' with the arrow keys.

I know that the tab key will do the job in that situation, but it'd be nice if the behaviour of the arrow keys was the same in both cases.

Thanks for reporting. The autocomplete component is known to be pretty buggy and far from ideal. Richard F is going to fix it in his copious free time.

:) It's actually a fair amount better than it was, but yes, still things to address with it.
