Hi,

I want to allow the user to choose a "property name" in a combo box.

As there is a lot of property names in my application, I want to group them by "family name".

In order to do that, I want to use a combo box with the family names and when the cursor is entering an item, a "cascade popup" opens to list all the property names for this family.

Does something already exist to do that or will I have to implement it myself ?

Thanks,

Combos do not currently offer to do this, so you'll have to implement it.

Not 100% but it uses a Tree instead of a list in the drop down.
