setValue from JS API of autocomplete not working, fixing

Version 1

    From this link we know about function "setValue" of rich:autocomplete component.

    But this method not working in Safari and Chromium browsers and works fine in Firefox.

    Example:

    {code}

    #{rich:component('id_component')}.setValue(null)

    {code}

    After this call in Firefox input value is erased, but in Chromium(maybe in Chrome too) and Safari nothing happens(value not erasing).

    To fix this, we must modify AutocompleteBase.js file:

    Find "updateInputValue" function:

    {code}

    var updateInputValue = function (value) {

        if (this.fieldId) {

            rf.getDomElement(this.fieldId).value = value;

            return value;

        } else {

            return "";

        }

    };

    {code}

    and replace as below:

    {code}

    var updateInputValue = function (value) {

        if (this.fieldId) {

            $(rf.getDomElement(this.fieldId)).val(value);

            return value;

        } else {

            return "";

        }

    };

    {code}

    Main idea is to use .val() function of jQuery insted ".value=" .

    P.S. I use Richfaces 4.3.1
