AJAX :: Combo Box In DropDownStyle Allow To Paste Text?
Mar 10, 2011
I have an Ajax Toolkit combo box in DropDownStyle Mode. The DropDownStyle should prevent the user from entering values that are not in the list of items of the combo box. The problem is, if the user paste some text (right-click --> past OR ctr + V) in the combo box, it will work, event if the pasted text is not the list of items. Is there a way I can prevent this?
I have a .net 3.5 web form with an ajax combo box and a text box inside it. The bombo box is bound to a SqlDataSource.
My requirement is to show/hide the text box depending on the text of the selected item in the combo box. If a particular string, say 'xyz', appears in the text of the selected item, the I will make the text box invisible. I enabled the AutoPostback, made the text box disappear in the SelectedIndexChanged event, and everything worked fine.
However, when users enter their own texts (which are not in the list items), I am unable to show / hide the text box. I've tried the TextChanged event but nothing happens. It seems the event is not trigger after I enter a new text and locate the focus to other place.
is there a way to prevent the user ented text from being inserted into the bombo box?
Can I provide a Combobox that will EITHER let a user type in a value OR let them select from the dropdown? I am trying to create a scenario where a user can attach a value to an object they are editing. When attaching that value, I want them to be able to type in a completely new value or, select from a list of already-existing values.
When I create the combo box, I add a list item that has text like "Type a value or pick from the list"...this has an index of 0. Then I append the databound values to the list.
A combo box seems like the perfect solution since it combines a text box with a drop down list but, I can not figure out how to retrieve the text that has been typed into the combobox once the form is submitted. cmbMyComboBox.text seems to be the obvious way to do it but, that returns an empty string. If I try to get the SelectedItem.Text then, I get "Type a value or pick from the list" instead of whatever text I typed into the combobox, once it was displayed.
Am I trying to do something that the ComboBox is not meant to do? How can I accomplish this?
I have decided to abandon trying to use the combo box. I am trying to use a dropdown menu in one column, and text boxes in all the others. But, I am having a strange problem with that as well. I will post those problems in the appropriate forum. I marked this post as "No Status" because I didn't see any way to delete it.
I am creating a web form for employees to submit recipe's on a web form. The fields are recipe name, ingredients, and the recipe instructions. Majority of the time, employee's will be copying/pasting the text from a word document. Currently I am using the ajax editor control. I know there is a "Paste from Word" button that can be used but all the users are not going to know to use the button.
They may just do a right click to paste or the ctrl v to paste. When this is done, all the html tags from Word are pasted as well. I want to be able to remove the tags.
I am using the combo box for my project and I am having some odd behaviour from combobox...
i am using this combobox inside a formview control...once i click on combobox it is showing the list items at the bottom of formview not next to combobox control...I think it is taking the top and left values from formview offset.
I specified DropDownStyle = "DropDownList", so that users are not allowed to enter text that does not correspond to an item in the list.but my problem is that I can not typed text in the combobox even if I type the text that corresponds to an element of the list of combobox!!

I looks like if you use the filteredtextboxextender control with number as the type some Mac browers don't let you paste text into the text box with the cmd+V. I have verified this with the filteredtextboxextender demo page.
I tried to use the Paste from Ms word button in the tool bar of htmlEditor to paste text. The htmleditor to manage to clean up the MS tags in the html markup. However, it also removes all the font sizes, setting them all to be a default font size.
I haven't been able to find a post about this, but the HTMLEditor is finally a rich text editor that properly removes word formatting without messaging up other stuff (thank god!). However, because I know my users, I would like for this 'paste as word' mode to be always on whenever they paste, how can I accomplish this?
