Hi again, you have a good point about stopping the event propagation. Here is a different approach (that shouldn’t have any issues too):
Your solution works for ui-autocomplete, and it is easy to extend to other elements/widgets if they are known in advance. But what if I want to create a SM-based component that can be used with any widget in it?
The SmartMenus code that hides the menus on click is generic enough and should work with all types of elements/widgets that are rendered inside the mega menu. The problem with the autocomplete is caused by the fact that the autocomplete element is actually not appended inside the menu where the input is by the jQuery UI code but is a child of the BODY element.
But also in general no matter how well you try to design your “widgets” to avoid any possible conflicts with other scripts/CSS, it’s simply impossible to be sure this would never happen in certain scenarios. One could always write a JS/CSS snippet that could accidentally break/conflict with your widget.
