WM 24 Combo box + Edit problem

I'm using Windev Mobile 24.
Project set for Android configuration.

In a "ComboBox + edit" it's impossible type any character like in a edit box and start the search.
The character typed remains hidden and useful only for select an element in the list.

In this video at 2:50 you can check what I mean, (ver 20...)


Thanks for any info or work around.

Hi

You could set it on a combo box and maybe make it work on emulator but not all devices could have this feature.
That's why sometimes the block of the check it have a grey color.
that means not all devices could have it or the configuration of the project can't handle it.

Hi,

the problem is that it doesn't even work on the emulator. In the documentation it is mentioned as working forn Android and as you can see from the video I linked, in previous versions of WDM it worked correctly.

Hi,

Maybe it's a bug, did you send a request to PCSoft about this problem?
make sure to send them a simple project about this.
and some documentation of how to use your project.

from here I can't help you with this, I have WM23 and I'm no longer have thecnical support for this version also I never use this feature before, I will use it just to test how is it work and if WM23 doesn't have this bug or something like that.

Hi,

I test it on WM23 with emulation and with a device

on the emulation works great without any problem take in mind that I only test it to search I do not use anything more like make sure the combobox return the value or not.
then I test it on my device and I expected the search doesn't work on my Samsung J2 I do not have any way to type on my combobox

this only works for emulation, I do not test it on my iPhone but maybe just maybe it could work.

Now about your problem

How do you fill the combo box?

in my project I do this:

ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test1"+gLink("Test1"))
ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test2"+gLink("Test2"))
ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test3"+gLink("Test3"))


with this I can now search the info I want on my combobox using the type edit on the combobox, it will search for it and select it for me.
Make sure you follow all the steps of the video.

I test it with this too:
ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test1")
ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test2")
ListAdd(Combo_Test1,"Test3")


and still working

could you prove it me more info?

it could even be a bug of WM24

Hi,

I download the 23 version of WDM and I made some test and works fine without problem.
Now I'm going to test on my android device (huawei honor 8).

I filled the combo in the same way you did it.

I suppose it's another WDM bug.

I tested the app WDM23 on my Android device and also for me there's no way to type any character... no keyboard display...

In the end I believe that, with ver 24, PcSoft corrected an Android discrepancy between the execution between the emulator and the device that was present in previous versions...
