Dropdown Selection Problem

0 Kudos

In webdynpro when I select dropdown by typing a letter, usually the curser is moved to first word of that particular letter, and after selecting some value, dropdown value is get selected. But now by default when type a letter, first word in my dropdown with that letter, got selected, without moving the curser to that position. I am facing this problem, only when I associate some action with Onselect event.

For example.

My dropdown is






Curser kept on dropdown, and when I type J, the position move to June and the value is not get selected. I have the option to move to July and then when I select July, the value is moved to context.

But now when I type J itself, June gets selected and the value is moved to the conext.

My development is on WebAS6.4 SP19. I am developing a stand alone webdynpro application. I am not using EP. Also I am using custom theme in my server for webdynpro applications. I have tried with DDBI and DDBK. I facing the same problem with both.

Is there any solution to resolve this issue?

Thanks in Advance.

This is standard behaviour for a Web Dynpro DropDown component and is not affected by the other environmental issues you've discussed.

AFAIK there is no way to change this behaviour. Once an event is attached to the onSelect action, it will refresh the screen when you type a letter that corresponds with the first letter of an element...

Thanks for the reply.

But the same application was working fine (the manner, which I was explained) in SP13. But i am facing this problem after migrating to SP19.
