Disabling the Combobox's Autocomplete feature.
Posted on 2000-01-09
When a combobox's edit field has a value, and the UpdateData(FALSE) is called, the combobox automatically
selects a value from the list part of the combo, matching the value in the edit field. Is there any way to
turn off this feature ?
Removing the Combobox control from DDX would prevent the autocomplete feature, but it would also mean that I'd had to access the control manually every time I want to use it.
Isn't there any other way of disabling this autocompletion feature ?
The problem is that a user types in data in the Combobox's edit field, TAB's on to the next control, and
in that control's Event map, the UpdateData(FALSE) is called - making all of my Comboboxes autocomplete.
