One control used in two ways??

Hi,

Is there a possibility to use a Combo control as a text control or vice-versa?

I need to use one control with two functionalities, one to enter a free text and other to select from combo list at the same time. (In search scenario)

Thanks & Regards,

Praveen.

    Hi,

    no, this is not possible as normally there is a combo validation active for the underlying BQ property.

    What you can do is to create 2 controls, one for the combo, one for free text and put them exactly on top of each other., both of them hidden.

    In the onload event and in the place where you are able to decide which should be active you can toggle the property from hidden to normal and vice versa for both controls.

    Of course both controls need to be unbound and mapped to the particular BQ property/properties but this depends from your scenario.
