combo in grid column - how to close the dropdown?

using the 2.0 free trial on firefox 1.5. trying out the examples



both have the same problem that the drop down does not close. is there any fix or workaround?

i used to call obj.setEditorTemplate(myCombo, col) in b3 (or b2?) which does not work in 2.0 now.

The combo issue is a known bug in FF 1.5.

Is there a workaround for this issue?

If not, any idea when this bug will be fixed in either ActiveWidget 2.x or Firefox? We are planning to use a dropdown menu in a grid in our product, so this issue is very important for us.

Thank you all for your help! This forum is great!

I HAVE NOT seen a fix or work around for this... It has been asked now
Many times!
No response at all so far that I know of?

We've all been waiting for this!

Error: this.getContent("box/text").element().focus is not a function
Source File: runtime/lib/aw.js
Line: 47

This is an error on the same object. Could be the visual elements of the object is getting screwed up on this function call and as a result it is not allowing the hidePopup() function to do its thing. Not sure, maybe this could give Alex a lead. I have been fooling around with grabbing the object myself and setting some of the attributes to solve the issue, but if this error is causing issues then it is hard to tell what is happening.

commented out the code causing the error. no more error. Still not working.
Really crazy. The only thing I can think of is that there may be some CSS causing the hidePopup function to not do what it is supposed to do.

I need this to work so I guess I'll keep hacking.
