Autocompletion of "dBLoookUpPickList" in dBGrid
« on: June 14, 2023, 06:11:19 am »
Sorry for my bad english...

I work with Windows 10/11, Lazarus 2.2.6, SQLite 3.42 and the latest version of ZeosDbo.

I have a dataset with a lookup field. I edit it with a data grid. The grid correctly displays the pick list for this field, but I haven't found an easy way to autocomplete it (i.e. when the user enters characters, the "dBLookupList" moves to the nearest record). It's impossible to enter character...

The problem seems to be that the selection list field uses an edit cell of type TPickListCellEditor which derives from a TCustomComboBox that doesn't implement this functionality.

As I understand it, the dBGrid's TDBLookupCombobox mechanism is supposed to implement autocompletion, but it doesn't display anything.

I tested with onSelectEditor without success.

I'm open to suggestions. Thank you very much.

Best regards,
