Sizes and colors

last modified: 12/07/2023 14:45:09

All form fields have a 100% width so they need to be included in a gridding to have the wished size.

Each <input> must be wrapped within <div class="rs-form-item"> container. This container must contain <input type="search"> and <label> linked to the input thanks to for attribute refering to the <input> id .
We put ac- prefix (abbreviation for "accessibility") to know that this id has been added for accessibility matter.

By default, all form fields are mandatory, except those mentionned with (optional) in the label.


Default search

Default negative search

rs-form-neg class added on <form> or a <div> container (if <form> is not needed in particular cases like with Angular) allows to switch all form fields to negative version.


Search with button

Search fields can be combined with a button as a standalone form.


Search loading


Error search

To use Zurb Foundation form check javascript, data-abide="ajax" should be added to <form> so error class will be added/removed dynamically when needed, for example if <input> is required.

Accessibility

The <span> error message should have an id which should be referenced in the <input aria-describedby="ac_error_id"> for screen readers when the error is displayed.

id is prefixed with "ac-" (as accessibility abbreviation) to know this is added for accessibility matter.

Javascript will display the error automatically.

This is an error message

Search with helper text

Accessibility

The <span> helper text should have an id which should be referenced in the <input aria-describedby="ac_helper_id"> for screen readers.

id is prefixed with "ac-" (as accessibility abbreviation) to know this is added for accessibility matter.

Helper text

Disabled search

Just add disabled attribute to both <input> and <button> .


Search autocomplete

Accessibility

Following attributes have to be added to <input> for screenreaders to understand the list related to the search field:

  • autocomplete="off" stops browsers from showing their own suggestions, which would interfere with those offered by our component
  • role="combobox" : a combo box is an edit control with an associated list box that provides a set of predefined choices
  • aria-autocomplete
    • aria-autocomplete="list" : indicates that the autocomplete behavior of the text input is to suggest a list of possible values in a popup and that the suggestions are related to the string that is present in the textbox
    • aria-autocomplete="both" : indicates that the autocomplete behavior of the text input is to both show an inline completion string and suggest a list of possible values in a popup where the suggestions are related to the string that is present in the textbox
  • aria-expanded="false" tells users whether the search list is expanded or collapsed by toggling its value between true or false , must be updated each time search list is visible or not
  • aria-controls="ac-searchList-ID" containing the ID of <ul> list
  • aria-activedescendant="" refer to the currently active element (ID of focused <li> via keyboard), must be updated each time user press navigation keys like Arrow Up and Down

Following attributes have to be added to <ul> :

  • id="ac-searchList-ID" must contain the same value as aria-controls="ac-searchList-ID" on <input>
  • role="listbox"
  • tabindex="-1" to make search list inside clickable but not focusable
  • aria-labelledby="ac-title-ID" linked to label

Following attributes have to be added to <li>

  • unique id on selectable items put inside aria-activedescendant="" when selected
  • role="option" on selectable items
  • aria-selected tells users which option within the list is visually selected or not by toggling the value between true or false , must be updated each time user press navigation keys like Arrow Up and Down
  • aria-live="polite" role="status" on search status if used
How does it work

Search Autocomplete is a webcomponent which needs data-rslib-webcomponent-load="rslib.apps.searchautocomplete" attribute to work. Javascript will add keyboard interractions.

Don't forget attribute data-searchautocomplete on input .

Astuce with overlayer

In overlayer, use a gridding columns small-12 medium-11 around.

You can change height of the list with class rs-scroll-v rs-maxh-XXX (see height according to its needs).

  • Search for: Smart
  • Smart
  • Smart wifi
  • Smartphone

Both: select first element

  • Search for: Smart
  • Smart
  • Smart wifi
  • Smartphone

No result / Empty case

  • Your search did not yield any result. Please adapt your search criteria.

JavaScript

How to trigger the js

Each time you add Search field to the page, you have to use this JS function inception.forms(CONTEXT);

CONTEXT refers to document or html element parent.

Autocomplete

How to trigger the js

As Search Autocomplete is a webcomponent, you will have to load inception.webComponentLoad(CONTEXT); first to be able to load the scripts.

Next time you add Search Autocomplete to the page, you have to call those JS: inception.forms(CONTEXT); searchautocomplete.init(CONTEXT);

CONTEXT refers to document or html element parent to the component.

Pay attention to not use directly those events on any search autocomplete element: click, keydown, focus, blur.

What the library doesn't do

You still need to filtered options in the SEARCHLIST based on printable characters in INPUT. Use input event for that.

Search autocomplete webcomponent got dispatch event that you can trigger:

  • Close: INPUT.addEventListener('inception.searchautocomplete.close', FUNCTION);
    Your FUNCTION will be triggered when Search list linked to INPUT is closed.

SEARCHLIST refers to html element ul.rs-form-search-list linked to INPUT.

INPUT refers to html element input[data-searchautocomplete] .

FUNCTION refers to function of your choice.
