I used the example code from the README, and added data-combobox-case-sensitive="no" and data-combobox-search-option="beginning":

<input type="text" name="mysuper_field" id="id_mysuper_field" class="js-combobox" list="beers" data-combobox-prefix-class="combobox" data-combobox-case-sensitive="no" data-combobox-search-option="beginning"/>
  <datalist id="beers">
    <option value="Meteor">
    <option value="Pils">
    <option value="Kronenbourg">
    <option value="Kronenbourg 2 (for test)">
    <option value="Kronenbourg 3 (for test)">
    <option value="Grimbergen">

Searching for "b" should provide no suggestions but gives Grimbergen and the 3 Kronenbourg options as suggestions. This works fine with case sensitivity left as the default (on), but for my use case I need to have it off.

It looks like the issue is in the big conditional that splits for containing/beginning - since the containing section evaluates to true (it winds up as false && (false) || (true)), it doesn't matter that the correct end of the conditional found no results.

Hi @Kataract

you're right, I manage to reproduce it, my parenthesis are not well made.

I'm going to fix it in a few minutes...
