Can eValid deal with auto suggest input fields

Morning.

What happens when an input field has "auto suggest" capability?

How does eValid test that?

Thanks for asking TeddyS.

This feature of some web pages can be quite tricky to test.

The issue often is, to validate a popup auto suggest value to make sure every autosuggest option is correct.

That is a tall order because there could be multiple auto suggest outputs for every single keystroke that you type...and there are many combinations.

Here is a page that describes the basic technique:

Note that the example given confirms that the required auto suggest response is included, not the every auto suggest value you see is appropriate to what you have typed in.

This, as pointed out above, can be very difficult to confirm because of the very large number of combinations involved.
