Hi Tibby, hi Kohei!

Just a (maybe) silly question ... below.

Same from my side :-)

Is it really helpful to use auto-completion in this box (in this special
case)? As far as I can understand, users enter values because they there
is no selection available in the drop-down box. Or is the hard part (the
coding you mentioned) disabling / removing auto-completion?

However, accessibility is kept, since both "Cursor Up/Down" and "Alt
+Cursor Down" work as expected to quickly select items.

Don't know whether this helped ...
