re: HTML can do that? VIEW POST


Nice, the datalist is one I'll have to definitely look at. The frontend team at my job is building out a new set of components for our apps, including various dropdown/filterable elements. Same with details.


I was thinking the same, although you'd still need some kind of JavaScript fallback for older browsers, even for the datalist one. Safari for example is supporting that since 12.1. (macOS) and 12.2. (iOS) only.


thankfully we only have to support latest FF, Chrome, and soon Edge. i'm ok with that.


I found this when trying to make a searchable drop-down, and it's almost perfect except I couldn't make it show all options when it first recieves focus. So annoying.


if you were trying in firefox i think there's a known issue around that. may have some info on that
