Getting `defaultSelected` instead of `selected` in HTML

See original GitHub issue


I have a weird issue, where I am not able to use defaultXXX, ie defaultSelected.

I am using Reef 7.6.6 in Electron app and I am not doing anything fancy:

                            <select name="type">
                              <option ${reminder.type === 'repeat' ? 'defaultSelected' : ''}>repeat</option>
                              <option ${reminder.type === 'once' ? 'defaultSelected' : ''}>once</option>
                              <option ${reminder.type === 'cron' ? 'defaultSelected' : ''}>cron</option>

I tried to reproduce in codepen, but everything works fine there.

I noticed, though, that in codepen the resulting value in html is selected, while in my project I am getting defaultselected.

<option defaultselected="">once</option>
<option selected="">once</option>

Not really sure where to look, I must be doing some rookie mistake.

Alright, this should be resolved with v8.0.3.

Oh, and thanks for the reduced test case. Super helpful!
