2965945 - SAPUI5: Error with MultiComboBox and Suspend: Error: Cannot read property 'focus' of undefined at f.t.onAfterRenderingList


  • There is an error in our Fiori applications that the reselection of a value from a MultiCombobox does not work
  • When tested, the error is found and occurs only after SAPUI 1.77.2.
  • The application has the following:
    • It is using the SAPUI5 MultiComboBox for filtering in an Analytic Page
    • The user can select different values here
    • Special feature, the MultiComboBox loads the data lazy from the ODATA service, i.e. the items are suspended in XML
    • By clicking on the ComboBox the function "onResumeItems" is called, which resumes the items (available in online blogs)
    • So far we had no problem with this procedure
    • But after 1.77.2 the following problem occurs
      • When opening the MultiComboBox for the first time you can still select the values
      • If you open the ComboBox again, no selection is possible, because the ComboBox is closed immediately
      • This application works in SAPUI5 1.77.2
      • With other MultiComboBoxes that do not use this lazy loading (Suspend = true) it works
      • As a hotfix solution, the design team is using SAPUI5 version 1.77.2 so that users are not affected by this error
      • ~~~~~~~Example Definition of the MultiComboBox in the XML view ~~~~
        <MultiComboBox xmlns="sap.m" id="component" items="{path: '/ComponentView', sorter: {path: 'component'}, suspended: true}" loadItems=".onResumeItems" selectionFinish=".onApplyFilter">    <Item xmlns="sap.ui.core" key="{component}" text="{component}"/> </MultiComboBox> Function for resuming the suspended items on click

        /** * Resume the selection of the assemblyLines (Lazy loading). * @param {sap.ui.base.Event} oEvent Event */ onResumeItems: function (oEvent) {  try {   var oItems = oEvent.getSource().getBinding("items");   if (oItems.isSuspended()) {     oItems.resume();   }  } catch (err) {   Log.warning("Combobox " + oEvent.getSource().getId() + " failed to resume ready: " + err);  } },
