Hi friends,

We can use mouse to click the list and the whole list will be shown then we can select any value in it. And also, we can use keyboard to select the value we want. But my question is can we use keyboard(such as CTRL-F4) to display the whole list of the component(drop/down list and data list) like using mouse.

Thanks,
Ricky Ru

Hi Ricky,

Ctrl+F4 works on win32 because this is a behaviour of its native combo
control, but this does not work on the other platforms. GTK and cocoa may
have their own key equivalents that do this but I don't know what they are.

If you do some research and find that the other platforms do not provide a
way to do this then you can listen for a key, like Ctrl+F4, and invoke
Combo.setListVisible(true) (as of eclipse/swt 3.4).

HTH,
Grant

Hi Grant,

Thanks for your suggestion.
I have found the key we can use to show the whole list. That is ALT+UP/DOWN.
Thank you again.

Ricky
