When I click the select element, as expected, I get the dropdown of options (in my case, a list of names). When I type a letter, it will as expected, scroll down to the first name that begins with that letter, but it will also put that name into the select field even tho it has not been selected yet. If you click on the field(not on the option in the dropdown, it leaves the name in the field (instead of a blank or the value that was already in the field), but does not cause the onchange event to occur. This is problematic and can be confusing to users. The onchange event triggers a JavaScript function that fills out a div on the page (using an ajax call to the DB).
Any help or a workaround suggestion would be appreciated.
