Target Release: FUTURE
Priority: P5 (trivial)
Summary: Support query values pasted in with mouse

Values pasted in with mouse (i.e., right-click > paste) don't trigger key events therefore don't trigger queries. Will consider adding a config to enable interval detection to support this case.

We've extended the YUI control distributed in YUI 2.6.0 and added paste support by adding the following event listener:

Event.on(input, 'paste', function(e, autocomplete) {
// We're interested in the value of the input field after text is pasted into it instead of the pasted text because the autocomplete
// proposals are based upon the field's whole value. The paste event happens before the input field has been updated so we need to wait until
// after this event has been handled to check the value of the input field.
window.setTimeout(function() {
if (autocomplete._sInitInputValue !== autocomplete.getInputEl().value) {
}, 1);
}, this);
