F1 F1 F1 --- Combo box issue
Posted on 2004-08-12
I have created a custom combo box control. It goes to the matching entry in the list as you type. It works great all times BUT if the combo is dropped down (combo.DroppedDown = True) and the user types in an item & hits TAB key then it does not work.
When the user types with drop-down portion visible, it correctly selects the matching item and displays but when the user hits TAB it goes to the previous item that was selected in the combo and not the new item. Surprisingly on the combo's lostfocus/leave, when I do combo.selectedValue I get the correct value of new item but it just does not select and highlight the new item in the combo.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
