--- Comment #9 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2011-05-10 03:44:14 UTC ---
What you're describing is an entirely new widget. We don't have anything
currently that lets you store state beyond what is actually there. We might
want to add that it due course, but just adding an event for when you pick
something from a list wouldn't be close to sufficient for a sane UI.

I'm not aware of any real-world widget which is a simple text field with a
simple autocompletion drop-down that does anything like what you describe.
There are some widgets out there that do this kind of thing, e.g. the date
format editor in Mac OS X's preferences (though it doesn't use autocomplete to
get the effect, it just has a palette and uses drag-and-drop), but none that
could just be implemented the way you describe.

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: If we add such a widget we need a lot more research. We should do
that once the current set of widgets have been properly implemented.
