Additional Information About Changes

Improved Behavior of sap.m.Input value Property

As of version 1.24 of the UI development toolkit for HTML5 (SAPUI5), the value property of sap.m.Input is no longer updated on every keystroke. Instead, the value is only updated when the user presses Enter or leaves the input.

This new behavior fully supports standard UI5 data binding featuring formatters and types. For instance, in some applications it was not possible to enter 1.2 into an input bound with a numeric type, as the value 1. was already validated and discarded before the user had the chance to enter the last digit. The new behavior means that you can now use the sap.m.Input control in two-way binding to full effect.

If you still need to update values immediately on every keystroke, the following options are available:

  • Handle liveChange events. This feature has already been available for many releases.
  • Enable the new boolean property valueLiveUpdate (default: false), which lets you use the old behavior.
