Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor seems to be broken in 1.8.2

Reported by guntersammet | January 30th, 2009 @ 07:03 PM

As posted on the mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/p..., here a ticket to track it:

Just recently downloaded the newest version (1.8.2) and it seems like the Ajax.InPlaceCollectionEditor doesn't work anymore.

I set up a demo at:

http://sammysolutions.com/debugg... http://sammysolutions.com/debugg...

Main issue is example 2 (should autoselect "two"). It doesn't jump to two in the 1.8.2 example. On top of the selection issue in all browsers I tested so far (FF, Safari, IE), in IE7 the editor doesn't show t the selection object at all.

I think I fixed the issue in FF that the element does not get selected. I changed line 841 in controls.js from

  option.selected = textFound ? entry[0] == marker : 0 == index;


  option.selected = textFound ? entry[0] == marker : entry[1] ==


See http://sammysolutions.com/debugg... for a working example.

If this is a proper fix, please submit to the repository.

Didn't debug the IE issue yet. Please advise! Thanks,
