Hey @gsf,

Thanks for opening this pull-request! Unfotunately, it looks like it fails to pass the tests neccessary for submitting to bootstrap. The following tests are currently failing:

  • should always include a unit test if changing js files

For a full list of issue filing guidelines, please refer to the bootstrap issue filing guidelines.

If you want this behavior, you can actually add it now with just 1 line of js - so i'm not sure we need it in the core of the library.

$input.on('focus', $input.typeahead.bind($input, 'lookup')));

Great to know. Thanks!

Great! it's a also a good idea to change overwrite the bootstrap typeahead css class locally to set max-height and vertical scroller for the results in case there are too many.

.typeahead {
max-height: 200px;
overflow-y: auto;
overflow-x: hidden;

Another cosmetic enhancement would be setting the min-width of the drop-down to match the width of the element.

show: function () {
      this.$menu.css('min-width', (this.$element.width()) + 'px')

Where do I implement this line of code?

$input.on('focus', $input.typeahead.bind($input, 'lookup')));

@abenrob: You need to replace input with the selector for your typeahead input. For example:

$("#typeaheadField").on('focus', $("#typeaheadField").typeahead.bind($("#typeaheadField"), 'lookup'));

Then place it after

$(document).ready(function () {

Unfortunately in my case adding this line (with focus or click as the event) and setting minLength to 0 has no influence. The list opens only after I start typing.

So @fat I can't get your one-liner to work, apparently @barbalex can't either. Any thoughts? Thanks

I also used the suggested code, doesn't work.
