Hy,

I'm using the MultiSelect Widget. Standard Functionality is that if the user presses [Backspace] the previous selected item will be removed. In my case I don't want this behavior - if user presses [backspace] nothing should be done except removing single chars if there are any one.

I tried a jquery function on the keydown event to avoid the standard behavior of deleting the previous added item but this is firing after the item is deleted! So it is too late!

Is there any chance to disable the behavior of deleting the previous added item?

Greetings from Austria
Florian

Hi Florian,

This behavior is currently not supported out of the box, however it could be achieved using a custom solution. For example you could reverse the order in which the keydown event handlers are executed and prevent the event propagation if the pressed key is backspace. Here is a proof-of-concept example illustrating the above approach.
