Setting text focusOut Event


I am using ej.ejAutocomplete control, it works good but I have a small problem.

If the user selects an item from suggestion popup list, I store the selected item in a local variable. 

The problem that I have is;
If the user removes a part of the text in autocompleteTextbox, I would like to set the text again on focusOut event, from tha local variable that I stored.

Here is the use case:
  1. User searches Departments
  2. Select "Development" Department from popup => selected item is saved in local variable on "select" event
  3. User deletes some text using backspace button and leave it like "Develo"
  4. OnFocusOut event, the text of textbox should be set to "Development" again (from selectedDepartment.name)

Hi Tolga,   
Thanks for Contacting Syncfusion support.  
We can achieve your requirement by using our existing events like “Select” and “focusOut” events and by declaring the variable as global, in which you want to store your selected value. Please refer the below code example.  
Code example:   
Global declaration:   
var store;   
                     dataSource: carList,   
                  select: function (argument) {   
                    store =(argument.text);   
                focusOut: function (argument) {   
                    $("#selectCar").ejAutocomplete("selectValueByText", store);   
Please find the code sample in the below link.
