Is anything like this out there? I'm looking for something simple, so far I've only found an autocomplete component which meets my main requirements, but unfortunately it adds these "bubble" graphics around the text (meant for multiple selections which I don't need). I'm not switching to Fx 3 compat mode. Spark autocomplete components aren't an option, this is a Halo/mx only project.
You can try our MX version:
Get the free developer edition to test it out. Add the "AutoCompleteComboBoxDeveloperEdition4.swc " to the library project . It extends the MX ComboBox; but is compiled against the Flex 4 SDK. Be sure to set AutoCompleteEnabled to true to enable to the AutoComplete functionality.
If you have problems, let us know.( https://www.flextras.com/index.cfm?event=ContactForm ).
[We also have a Native Spark version available; if you migrate at some future point]
Sorry, it's a shame, but this needs to be zero cost due to annoying/stupid reasons...
Turns out the component I've already located has a minor issue, but I did figure out that you can disable the 'bubble' style, and although it doesn't behave 100% like a TextInput, it might be good enough.
