We are currently using Prof-UIS 2.93.

When a user types into a Windows combo box (with the ’drop list’ style) there are two possible behaviours. If the combo is not marked as sorted, Windows will search for an item whose first character matches the key pressed. If it is marked as sorted, Windows will search incrementally for an item that begins with the typed string.

(For example: If a combo contains ’Oak’, ’Red’ and ’Rose’, typing RO will select ’Oak’ if it is not sorted, ’Rose’ if it is).

It seems that the CExtGridCellComboBox only supports the first of these methods. Is it possible that incremental search could be added?

Look ahead or incremental search can be added. We intend to add this after the 3.01 release. The time frame is Feb or March of 2014.
