ADF – LOV Auto Complete defaults to first value in the list

One very useful feature that I like in both OAF and ADF is the list of Values. Specially the autocomplete functionality makes it more worthy!
In ADF, to achieve this autocomplete feature, you just need to mark the autosubmit property as true for the inputListOfValues component, which invokes the autoCompleteValue() method of ListOfValuesModelImpl.

Today, I faced a strange issue related to this autocomplete feature in one of my lovs.
I have a List of values field in my page. When I enter a partial value and tab out…if only one value exists which starts with the entered partial value, that value is supposed to be defautled.
But incredibly, the first value of the lov is defaulted in the field instead of the selected value.
I could not stop laughing at myself when I found the reason for this strange behaviour. After wasting more than 4 hours, I found out that the Lov VO has no primary key marked! 🙂

The more you learn!! the more stupid u become!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Hi Adrian,

      Thanks for the comment.
      But I find it difficult to understand its meaning except for the first two sentences 🙂
      would you mind translating it to english.

    Hi ! I am also using LOVs and one strange behaviour I found the pop-up list when you tab out. When you scroll to the end of the list say from A to Z, the list fetches data from the top again and adds on the list from A-Z… and this goes on once you reach the last item in the list.

    Have you encountered this error before?

    I am using JDeveloper
    My usecase is when selecting LOV with multiple values from a single VO.How to return other attribute values in input text box.

      Hi Maheeba,

      can you plz explain your scenario with more details?
      are you talking about a nomal lov ex : an organization lov where organization name comes into base lov field and organization desc should come in another text field?
      or are you talking about a multi select lov?
      explaining your scenario would be helpful.
