Is it possible to force a combo to display its drop list
on-demand, ie when it gains focus?

The only way I have been able to do this is by using OS-specific code on
Windows:
OS.SendMessage(combo.handle, OS.CB_SHOWDROPDOWN,1,0);

Dave,

This is not currently supported, though there's a request that you can CC
yourself to: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=21619

Turns out that this is not possible on the Mac. There is no operating
system API for us to call to do it.
