Force the Lookup to drop for a TAdvEdit


I am starting to use the TAdvEdit component a lot to replace many of my combo lists that contain way too many items, and I love it.

One thing I have not been able to do, though, is to force the Lookup to drop in code (ie. show all available items, instead of filtering).

I tried to use:

cbUnicodeRanges.LookupVisible := true;

But that did not work.

Most of the time the filtering is fine, and the desired behavior, but in some cases, the user might want to see all available items.

Very best regards,


Did you try to set AdvEdit.Lookup.NumChars = 0 as otherwise, before the lookup is displayed, there must be minimum NumChars entered.

Thank you very much !
