I have a form built with
FORM Api. It has a text field, with Autocomplete.
I also have another form, with several fields, some of them with Autocomplete.
It works well, but I have to press Enter Key twice to send the form.
The first Enter key is to select an item. The second Enter key sends the selected item for process.
The behaviour that I have seen outside, in the wild, and which is customary in thousands of millions of sites is this:
- If only one field form (search form, for example), once you click or press enter with the suggested term highlighted, the form will be sent (let's call this behaviour One-Clik). Note: there are no multiple selections option, if not, this behaviour would have to be different.
- In several fields form, you just select and press ENTER, and can continue filling other fields. If you want to submit the form, you press the Go button or just click Enter in the autocomplete field if that is the last one you used. This is called Two-Clicks, except that: you can write some words in the autosuggest field, and not choose anything. The desired behaviour would be that just clicking ONCE the Enter key, you would submit the form. So this behaviour is really One-Click, with the only exception that selecting an item by pressing Enter key does not qualify as a click.
In order to have it working, I had to rewrite the autocomplete.js. Is there another solution?
I cannot understand how Drupal cannot manage by default such an easy behaviour, seem in millions of sites. And I can assure that for normal users this is very frustrating and irritating and very counterintuitive.
