Lookup field showing up as blank when using JavaScript “Filter Large Dropdown” solution

I have implemented the following solution in my form and it works great: Filtering large List Lookup dropdowns

My filtered control is a lookup field. When  the user searches in the filter text box and they select an item from the lookup field, it works.

However, the issue I’m having is that when the user searches for an item and there is only one item that pops up in the lookup field, the form does not save the value. 

I’ve tried JavaScript solutions using change(), I’ve tried clearing the filter before submit, I’ve tried ProcessOnChange(), all “attr” or prop.(selected),etc but I can’t seem to get the lookup field to take the value.


I would really appreciate some help.


Thank you in advance.
