Combo Box: Selection by character entry
Posted on 1998-12-03
CComboBox description says " ... if the combo box has the drop-down list style, the user can type the initial character of one of the items in the list, and the list box, if visible will highlight the next item with that inital character". By typing a second character within a short intervial, I have observed that items having the same first character can be selected. For instance, if the list has the entries "OH" "OK" "OR", typing "O" and then "R" (without pausing) will select "OR". But if the list has entries "II" "III" "IV" "V", typing "I" and then "V" (again without pausing) selects "V", not "IV" as I wished. Typing "I" and then "I" selects "III", not "II". I have not been able to locate the code that does the selection. Where is it? How can I fix this anomalie of combo box item selection by key stoke of the first two characters?
