Issue 520520: Provide a mechanism to allow authors to open HTMLSelect elements

Reported by, Aug 13 2015 Project Member

Issue description

Currently we find that some authors are using dispatching mousedown events at select elements to cause them to open.


I've specifically proposed this as a feature:

Comment 2 by, Aug 13 2015

Specifically once default actions for untrusted events don't work authors won't be able to do this. We should provide an alternate mechanism.

Marking this as an OWP launch bug.  We'll need to do an intent-to-ship for this once you feel it's ready.

We'll make every effort to reply soon as we have the chance to sync internally. cc

Marking this Hotlist-Interop since it's the last known thing blocking  issue 520519  which is an interop issue.

Dave, what's the current status here?  IIRC there was a potentially compelling argument that the API should be using an HTML attribute.

Comment 8 by, Mar 30 2016

I need to talk to you about the async behaviour of the API. Just need like 15-20 minutes to walk through and make a decision, but I think modeling it after dialog as requested is just fine.

Components: Blink>Forms>Select
Sounds good, let's chat.

Adding Blink>Forms>Select.  I think this feature could make sense on either input-dev or html/dom team.

Status: WontFix (was: Assigned)
Based on UMA data it was decided to abandon this.

We have gone ahead and enabled preventing untrusted events from executing the default action like other vendors do.

If this becomes an issue for developers we can re-open this issue.
