Adobe Summit 2023 [19th to 23rd March, Las Vegas and Virtual] | Complete AEM Session & Lab list

AEM Dialog textfield saved data auto complete / auto suggestion does not disappear on window scroll.


Level 2



This might be a browser related issue but I thought I should still ask the community. I noticed this behavior on Chrome and Edge browsers, but not on Firefox. Auto complete / auto suggestion disappears on window scroll when using Firefox browser.


When authoring aem dialogs, when I click on any fields, auto complete / auto suggestion appears with values that were previously saved which is fine, but the issue is that when I scroll the window without selecting the suggested values or click away, this suggestion box doesn't disappear on window scroll. Any thoughts or solutions? Please see screenshots that may help you to understand what the issue is.


Your help is greatly appreciated! 
Thank you.

I feel this could be the issue/behavior with firefox not with AEM. Does a click inside the dialog make it disappear before you scroll down?

Thanks for you input @Saravanan_Dharmaraj. Yes, clicking inside and outside of the textfields before window scroll works. It's just when author forgets or does not click away, auto complete box scrolls with the window. You and @arunpatidar are correct, it seems like this is a browser issue, not AEM. Thank you again.

Hi @jakdevmode 

Write one focusout event based on name attribute of that particular text field. It will call the event only when you click on that text filed.

Hope this will help. Happy coding 🙂
