    Default Dropdown ComboBox Problem....

    Hi all,
    New here and looking for some help,grateful for any help I receive.

    Keeping it simple,I have a dropdown combobox withe a checkbox underneath.
    So you check the checkbox,then begin typing in the combobox.
    Whatever you type in the combobox,that pulls data from a DB and populates a table underneath.

    But the problem is - as soon as you start typing in the combobox,it autocompletes,as in if i type in "F" it will,for example,by itself presume that you are going to type "fish" although there may be many others that start with "f"....

    I need it let me finish typing before I select what one I want from the dropdown,and then select the data and populate the table....

    any help is greatly appreciated,I'm really stuck =(

    thanks

    Is your question in any way related to Java?

    Maybe this will help you ask a question that can actually be answered: How to ask questions the smart way

    To get better help sooner, post a SSCCE (Short, Self Contained, Correct (Compilable), Example) that demonstrates where your problem lies.
