When I type something in the control searches for matches and presents first one in a text area. That match comes up with partially highlighted text. If I hit escape key then the highlighted text is deleted while internally the control has its data intact. What I wanna do is either prevent pushing escape key or deleting the whole text area on escape along with resetting control's internal data.
Thansk for the help.
I think we ended up discussing this another thread, but for the sake of my own self-promotion to others who may come across this.
Check out the Flextras AutoCompleteComboBox.
We've spent a lot of time making it work just like the Firefox Awesome bar; and believe we addressed a lot of the odditiesthat exist in other open source versions.
I'm willing to guarantee that using our component will save you time when compared to building it yourself.
