Asked On January 27, 2017 09:17 AM UTC


I created an autocomplete with datasource on server side.
if the value does not exist (check in on focus out), i open a modal dialog for create a new value.

if the user write a new value and click (not with tab) on other field, the suggestion list can open but it will not close.
How can we to force by javascript to close the suggestion list?

i try $(this.elementId).ejAutocomplete("close");
but i receive an exception.

Hi Mickael,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   
To achieve your requirement, we have provided a workaround solution. That is, you have to use CSS for suggestionList “display:none” when the suggestionList needs to be closed.    
We have created a simple sample to achieve your requirement. In our sample, we have two buttons. One button is used to open the suggestionList. Another button is used to hide the suggestionList. Both actions are done by using click event of the buttons.   
You can download the sample from this link:
