Notes

While most commonly used on text fields, datalists can also be used on other input types. IE11 supports the element on range fields. Chrome and Opera also support datalists to suggest given values on range, color and date/time fields.

  1. Partial support refers to a bug where long lists of items are unscrollable resulting in unselectable options.

  2. Partial support in IE refers to significantly buggy behavior (IE11+ does send the input and change events upon selection).

  3. Partial support refers to no support for datalists on non-text fields (e.g. number, range, color).
