Custom select menu accessibility #4039
Custom select menus with multiple selects can't be accessed by keyboard. They can be opened but you can't select anything or close the menu.
Also, once the tab key is used while a custom menu is displayed it is not possible to get focus/access to the option list anymore.
I just tested this page on Chrome/Mac and I can use the keyboard:
What browser? Guessing it's Firefox's buggy focus stuff.
I tested the two multiple select menu examples on that same page on Chrome, FF, IE on Windows. I should have mentioned that when submitting the issue, sorry. I just tested on Chrome and FF on Ubuntu... same issue.
@toddparker Could it be you missed that I was talking about multiple selects, not custom select menus in general?
The multiple select menu can be opened with enter, but arrow keys only scroll the window. The issue is that the menu (modal or dialog) does not get focus when opened. Focus is still on the button.
The issue with tab goes for all type of custom select menus (modal or dialog).
