#1695 closed enhancement (wontfix)

ComboBox down arrow does not resend selected text when using remote mode

Description

When using the remote mode for ComboBox? it is often the case that the dataset available for selection would be large (hence the need for the ComboBox? over a regular select list). With the current implementation, handleArrowClick assumes the user wants to see all available options, which works fine for small datasets, however for larger datasets this is impractical. Logic needs to be added to handleArrowClick to allow the resending of the current text instead of an empty string. I'm not sure if the default behaviour should be changed or if a different solution should be provided, possibly an attribute to determine this behaviour.

It used to work that way. But some people wanted the down array to display all the values. Since the drop down list appears automatically (without pressing anything), there's really no need to display a down arrow at all. The only use for the down arrow is to display all the choices; otherwise you can get the filtered list by just typing something.
