Hello,

if I use the option "lsftContainsEh" for TDropDownBoxEh.AutoFilterType I was expected that I can type any text fragment to find one of the existing entries. But it's not as expected. Only the option "lsftBeginsWithEh" works.

Could you fix this or do you have a workaround?

Best greets

I use TDBComboBoxEh like a static combobox without DB source. Items and KeyItems are filled programmatically and TextToListValues is set to true.

Hello

Set TDBComboBoxEh.LimitTextToListValues = False.

Sorry, but what is the use of this proposal? My user should not be able to enter their own entries. He should only be able to find the programmatically created entries, so LimitTextToListValues must be True.

With option "lsftBeginsWithEh" for DropDownBox.AutoFilterType this works like expected, but the option "lsftContainsEh" is without any function. Otherwise, what is the point of this option if not the one I described?

Otherwise, even with LimitTextToListValues = False, no entries can be found with "lsftContainsEh".

Unfortunately, in the current version, this combination of properties (LimitTextToListValues=True + AutoFilterType=lsftContainsEh) is not fully supported.

I cannot confirm this problem.
It works for me in all my TDBComboBoxEhs.

Unfortunately, I didn't know that when I bought the component. For me it is important that the user can easily find the entries. Can you fix that in the next version?

Hello

We have added this feature to the request list for the next versions of the library (EhLib 9.6 or EhLib 9.7).
But we still need to estimate the amount of work.
Although visually this flaw looks like it needs to be fixed, in reality DBComboBoxEh does not provide for typing in the middle of other text.
The component will have to add a separate algorithm that will be responsible for this search method.

A simple customer list already requires the "lsftContainsEh" option if each entry consists of a customer number and customer name. The user not only wants to search for customer numbers, but also wants to be able to find customer names.

It would be very nice if you could add that. The option is there and it would be nice if it worked too.

Thank you very much.
