Vuetify open select/autocomplete/combobox menu on focus

I have a Vuetifyjs Autocomplete. I want to open its menu when user focuses on it using tab key from previous input. Below is the sample code

<div id="app">
<v-app>
    <v-container >
    <v-row >
        <v-col cols="12" md="4">
        <v-text-field label="Text Field"/>
        </v-col>
        <v-col cols="12" md="6">
        <v-autocomplete
            label="Autocomplete"
            :items="components"
            hint="need to open menu on focus, just like click" persistent-hint
        ></v-autocomplete>
        </v-col>
    </v-row>
    </v-container>
</v-app>
</div>

<script>
new Vue({
  el: "#app",
  vuetify: new Vuetify(),
  data: {
        components: [
          'Autocompletes', 'Comboboxes', 'Forms', 'Inputs', 'Overflow Buttons', 'Selects', 'Selection Controls', 'Sliders', 'Textareas', 'Text Fields',
        ],
  },
  methods: {
  }
})
</script>

    Because vuetify does not have the option you want, you must control it directly.

    An input tag exists inside the autocomplete component. Specify focus event directly on this input tag.

    Try this.

    // template
    
    <v-autocomplete
        ref="autocomplete" 
        label="Autocomplete"
        :items="components"
        hint="need to open menu on focus, just like click" 
        persistent-hint
    ></v-autocomplete>
    
    export default {
      mounted () {
        let autocompleteInput = this.$refs.autocomplete.$refs.input
    
        autocompleteInput.addEventListener('focus', this.onFocus, true)
      },
      methods: {
        onFocus (e) {
          this.$refs.autocomplete.isMenuActive = true  // open item list
        }
      }
    }
