  • Fixed an issue that prevented events from being detached when the AutoComplete widget was destroyed. [Ticket #2532419]


  • Fixed a potential XSS issue involving the ARIA live region and text results that contain HTML markup.


  • Added an enableCache config attribute. Set this to false to prevent the built-in result sources from caching results (it’s true by default).

  • The requestTemplate value is now made available to YQL sources via the {request} placeholder, which works just like the {query} placeholder. Use this when you need to customize the query value (such as double-escaping it) used in the YQL query. [Ticket #2531285]

  • Changing the value of the value attribute programmatically will now also update the value of the query attribute and will fire a clear event when the value is cleared (thus clearing results), but still will not fire a query event. Use the sendRequest() method to trigger a query programmatically.

  • Added a workaround for an IE7 bug that would cause the result list to appear empty when it first becomes visible.

  • Fixed a bug that caused a scrollable result list to be hidden when the user clicked and dragged on the scrollbar and then released the mouse button while the cursor was outside the list region.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the list to disappear on mouseover if the input field received focus before the AutoComplete widget was initialized [Ticket #2531651]

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent results from being selected via mouse click after a result was selected via the tab key. [Ticket #2531684]

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the list from being re-aligned when the window was resized.


  • The “combobox” ARIA role is no longer automatically added to an AutoCompleteList input node. After consulting with the Y! Accessibility team, we felt that the combobox role doesn’t accurately represent the out-of-the-box interactions that AutoCompleteList provides. Implementers can still apply this role (or any other ARIA role) to the input node manually if desired.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the autocomplete list from being hidden after right-clicking on the list and then clicking elsewhere in the document. [Ticket #2531009]


  • Added the ability to use a <select> node as a result source.

  • Function sources may now be either asynchronous or synchronous. Returning an array of results from a function source will cause it to be treated as synchronous (same as in 3.3.0). For async operation, don’t return anything, and pass an array of results to the provided callback function when the results become available. [Ticket #2529974]

  • Added a sourceType attribute to AutoCompleteBase, which may be used to force a specific source type, overriding the automatic source type detection. [Ticket #2529974]

  • The scrollIntoView config option is now much smarter. It will only scroll if the selected result isn’t fully visible. If the result is already entirely within the visible area of the viewport, no scrolling will occur.

  • A pre-existing listNode may now be specified at initialization time.

  • Added subWordMatch filters and highlighters. [Contributed by Tobias Schultze]

  • The this object now refers to the current AutoComplete instance instead of the window in list locators, text locators, filters, formatters, highlighters, and requestTemplate functions.

  • Added an originEvent property to the event facade of select events. It contains an event facade of the DOM event that triggered the selection if the selection was triggered by a DOM event.

  • Small performance improvement for filters operating on empty query strings. [Ticket #2529949]

  • Result list alignment is now updated both when results change and when the window is resized instead of only when the list becomes visible. This makes right-aligned lists with dynamic widths less awkward.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented CSS-based z-index values from taking effect on the AutoComplete list and required the z-index to be set via JS. The .yui3-aclist class now provides a default z-index of 1, and this can be overridden with custom CSS. Specifying a zIndex attribute value via JS no longer has any effect.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the IE6 iframe shim under the AutoComplete list to be sized incorrectly the first time the list was displayed.

  • Fixed a bug in which the requestTemplate would sometimes be used as the query instead of being appended to the source URL. This affected XHR and JSONP sources that used both a {query} placeholder in the source string and a custom requestTemplate value. [Ticket #2529895]

  • Fixed a bug that caused the requestTemplate function to be called twice for an XHR request instead of just once.

  • Fixed a bug in which JSONP, XHR, and YQL requests were cached solely based on the query rather than on the complete request. This could result in cache collisions when two requests with the same query but different parameters (provided by a requestTemplate) were made. [Ticket #2530410]

  • Fixed a bug that caused the & character to be treated as an up arrow key in Firefox. [Ticket #2530455]

  • Removed the “beta” label. Hooray!


  • Initial release.
