    Spark Combobox with empty dataprovider


      There seems to be a bug when using a spark combobox with an empty dataprovider.  The idea is to have an empty combobox that adds all entries into the dataprovider for each one entered.  Attached is a simple project to demonstrate this.  The first combobox has a dataprovider with the colors "Red", "Green", "Blue" in it.  Typing anything in the box, whether it is an existing item or a new one, will display it in the label below.


      The second combobox has a dataprovider that is currently empty.  Typing anything into the box and hitting enter does absolutely nothing.  There is no way to get the value entered into the combobox now.
