    Hi,

        I have a combo box with the following three properties:
    IsEditable="True"
    FilteringMode="Contains"
    StaysOpenOnEdit="True"

    Editing the box the first time works correctly "The drop down stays open as I edit and filters the contained list"
    BUT, when I edit it after I have selected and Item the drop down does not open unless I click the arrow to expand it AND, as I type to edit the box it will fire the select event on the fly "As I Type" without me hitting the Return/Enter key, it will pick the most relevant item to my text and select it.

    I have a workaround solution for now but a fix would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -Jason

    Hello Jason Noftall,

    Thanks for your report.

    Actually, we implemented the feature to behave exactly the way you described it. We thought that this would be the expected behavior. We might have missed the most commonly expected scenario, however, we will surely consider improving this feature and allow the users to either enable or disable the current behavior.

    Hello Jason Noftall,

    Това пропърти го маркирахме за изтриване преди няколко месеца и ще го трием. От друга страна дори самия му дескрипшън не намеква за функционалността която той търси...

    This was a long time ago, but I believe the work around I was thinking of was to detect when the ComboBox was first edited and then on the next edit I would reset the ComboBox to its original state, either by resetting any available properties, if that did not work I would alternatively replace the comboBox with a new instance and bind it to the same set of data as the previous.

    I hope this helps!
