Hi S_Line,  

Thanks for contacting us. 

We have checked your reported scenario for focusing the autocomplete component. We have provided public method for “focusIn” sets the focus to the component and for your scenario is schedule popup open focus the autocomplete. You can call the focusIn method in autoComplete created event or dialog open event after rendering the component. We have prepared test sample and code snippet for your reference.  

var autoObj = new ej.dropdowns.AutoComplete({ 
                    dataSource: members, 
                    fields: { value: 'text' }, 
                    floatLabelType: 'Always', placeholder: 'Team Members',  
                    created: function(){

Hi S_Line,


Thanks for your update.


We have checked your scenario and the cause of the problem is autocomplete component render before popup open event, so dialog not opened and  element not append to DOM. In popupOpen event argument returned popup element and take the popup instance and bind the open event, call the autocomplete focusIn method. Please find code snippet and sample for your reference.


  args.element.ej2_instances[0].open = function() {
