ComboBox autocomplete not working properly with pagination
I found some undesired behavior for the combobox control. I'm not quite sure whether it's a bug. Maybe somebody else went through the same issue I do. Now, let me describe a little the use case that leads to the problem:
-- I have a paginated combo with 12 items per page;
-- the combo has autocomplete enabled (forceSelection = true, editable = true);
-- I expand the bound list without typing any text;
-- I go to a page, say 9;
-- I start to type characters in the combo, say 'sencha';
Looking to the GET request parameters, I see the following set:
-- query : 'sencha',
-- limit : 12,
-- page : 9,
-- start : 96
And that's not quite what I expected. I expect that, when I start typing, the pagination resets. I'd presume I want to make a new search, completely unrelated to the previous one and to the page I've navigated to. At the beginning, I don't want to see the 9th page with results containing 'sencha'. What if only few items (2 or 3) in my list contains 'sencha'?
In the end, is this a bug?
If not, is there any workaround to obtain the behaviour I desire?
Thanks a lot.

As a user, I would expect paging to be cleared out as you are getting a new data set. If I can get a small test case I can open a bug report.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch
