[SOLVED] Programatically show ComboBox drop list?

Postby rkmore » Sat May 14, 2016 1:57 pm

Is there any way to programatically drop down the list of a ComboBox?

IsDropDownOpen or something like it does not seem to be present.

Thank you

Hi

The default ComboBox implementation uses the native "select" HTML tag, which has many advantages including the fact that on mobile devices it will open as a special touch-optimized picker.

That native HTML tag does not support being opened programmatically (it is an HTML limitation).

However, in a future version we are going to introduce the ability to have a non-native ComboBox, based on a ControlTemplate. At that moment it will be possible to programmatically open it

Thank you

Hi,

This is now possible with the recent versions of the product. The property "IsDropDownOpen" is now available.

You must use the non-html-native ComboBox. Here is an example:

Code: Select all

<ComboBox UseNativeComboBox="False" />
