Description Mark Malone 2006-09-05 17:16:56 PDT
If a user set focus to a select element by tabbing to it then types a known value, the select doesn't set the current value to what was typed.

If the user clicks on the drop down then clicks off, then types types a know value, the correct item is selected.

I'm seeing different results in stock Safari and TOT:

Stock Safari: the value changes only after tabbing out from the control. This is native Cocoa behavior, and it feels buggy to me.

TOT: typing has no effect. This matches Carbon, and I used to think that this is expected behavior.
