Does anyone know how to get the LoadItems method to not automatically open the dropdown control after loading? It also automatically gets the focus. I don't want the focus to change. If you have an example doing it with jquery, that will work as well.
I need to load numerous webdropdown controls at once, and I don't want to use an UpdatePanel because it is too slow and passes the whole page, and the loaditems method opens the webdropdowns up and sets the focus for some reason.
We have addressed this issue and in the latest builds you should be able to set a second parameter to the loadItems function which will instruct the dropdown to whether open or not open it automatically.
loadItems("text", false) ; // this will NOT open the container after items are received
loadItems("text", true); // explicitly setting second parameter to true will open the container - that was the behavior so far
Hope it helps. Thank you,
I need to be able to loaditems without any focus change. At the moment the webdropdown will always steal focus after I call loaditems.
