Subject Re: Cannot get TIB_LookupCombo to do incremental searching
Author Michael L. Horne
Hello Jason,

Last summer, I asked you about adding a way for the
LookUpCombo to automatically clear its selection, kind
a like a "AllowTimeOut" that fires when you exit the
control. So that when you return to the control it
expects you to start typing at the start instead of
taking up where you stopped.

I finally got around to doing some research into it
and found that if I added a "ClearSelection(False)" to
the Exit event of the control (see code below) it seems
to do what I am expecting. Is the change safe and the
right place to do this?

If so I will do the other code to add a property to
the control and send you a list of changes so it can
be added to IBO.

From IBG_LoookupCompb.IMP - Line 1002
procedure TIB_CustomCombo.CMExit(var Message: TCMGotFocus);
tmpKey: char;
if FSearchText <> '' then begin
tmpKey := #9;
DoIncSearchKeyPress( tmpKey );
ClearSelection( False ); <-------- Added this line
