Is there a way to set a combo box to "empty" on the client? I mean empty like when the page is first loaded with nothing in it and the empty message is showing.
Through client side code I can clear items, clear selection and even set the combo text. But I can not figure out how to get it back to the initial "empty" state through code. If I manually delete the text in the combo box it shows the empty message but I can't seem to set it through code.
I have linked combo's and if the user clears the parent then the child needs to be cleared (set to empty) and disabled.
I have resulted to clearing the items and setting the text to "select an item". My biggest issue is that the text looks different than the empty message text. Users pick up on that stuff.
This seems like an obvious thing to have. It would be nice if there was a method that set the combo to empty like:
I thought the clearItems method would have done this but it just leaves the text in the combo blank.
Any help would be appreciated.
