Textfield in a PopUp menu - is it possible? [message #452484] Mon, 21 March 2005 12:03 Go to next message

Hi all,

It would help the ease of use of my application if it was possible to allow
a user to enter text into a popup menu - does anyone know if this is
possible? Basically, there is some additional data the user can enter but it
is not required. If the user wishes, he/she may choose the textfield in the
menu and enter a name (then can continue to use the popup menu). Only when
the user selects an option (compulsory) on the popup menu will it be
disposed.

Any help, or helpful ideas, appreciated.

Thanks

Pat

Hi Pat,

This isn't supported, and I don't think that there is an easy way for you to
fake this. You can log a Feature Request with Platform - SWT for this
functionality, but since this is not a behaviour that this is supported
natively across the platforms, this would not likely be addressed soon.

.... and won't be. It's not possible on Windows. Do you really want a text
field in a menu or another kind of pop up widget, perhaps composed of a text
field and a table?
