Flex combobox dataprovider not updating

When working with the Combo Box component, I have found that I pretty much always want to bind a value to the Combo Box so that it automatically selects a corresponding record in the data Provider.

Up Arrow from first data row to header row or Right/Left Arrow between column headers says only "No item selected".

Posted on April 30, 2008 There are several Flex components for handling auto completion out there, for example components called Completion Input, Autocomplete Text Input or Adobes Auto Complete Input.

Much of the functionality and API of Combo Box is inherited from Drop Down List.

Drop Down List Spec Mick is creating an online survey for the Pitch Spoon music site.

UPDATE: Turns out for this to work properly you will have to call the function from the change event.

[read-write] IFactory that generates the instances that displays the data for the drop-down list of the control.

If you load an address into the form, the Combo Box should automatically select the state associated to that address.

To accomplish this I followed a post by Ben Forta to extend the Combo Box, and have made some changes over the years to fine tune it.

Today I ran into a situation where I wanted my Combo Box drop down text to have a 9px font size and a 10px font size on the text input portion.

This is a problem because your labels can easily get cut off.

I settled on naming the component VBCombo Box, with VB standing for Value Bound.
