HTML5 Datalist not working

HTML5 Datalist not working

Can anyone work out why my HTML5 Datalist is not working on this page


but is on this test page


The datalist options are being populated. If you look at the source you can see this, however, a dropdownlist is not appearing on the first page apart from for previous autocomplete options

It used to work when I first created it but I can't work out why it is not working now.

Thanks in advance for any help on this

RE: HTML5 Datalist not working


You banged the IDs :

CODE --> HTML ( fragment )

<input name="ctl00$searchterm" type="text" id="ctl00_searchterm" class="form-control" list="ct100_merchants" ... />
                                                                                    digit one |
                ,------------------------------------ vs. ------------------------------------'
                | lowercase letter L
<datalist id="ctl00_merchants"> ... </datalist>
