Last Modified: 2013-12-26
I need some thing like a select item change
In a drop down datawindow when you type the first letter in a itemchange event the code get trigger in the event when you type the first letter. if you turn edit on then it is not trigger
but I dont want the user editing the data out of the datawindow dropdown so
dont allow edit
I need to type the entire word then select the word out of the dropdown then the code would be trigger when I select the word

I would like when I typing the entire word in the drop down that the word would be highlighted to be selected

The moment I start typing the itemchange Event gets trigger
I neet a event when I select a colounm then the Event get trigger not when I am typing
know my point above that you did not understand or my poor grammer. The itemchange event works when I check Allow edit in the property. when I typing in the datawindow the itemchange event dont get trigger until I select some thing out of the drop down but allow edit have to be check so this good work but I really dont want to allow edit.
but I really dont want to allow edit.
