View Full Version : Auto Complete combobox on typing single character

8 Jul 2010, 4:24 PM
The Ext.form.ComboBox can be used to support autocomplete - choices either form local or
remote data store that prefill a list under the edit area as you type.

But it seems it always start to do so after at least 4 characters are typed in.
The doc on Ext.form.ComboBox does not list any property to change this.

So, how can one start the autocomplete upon first character?

the api has:

minChars : Number

The minimum number of characters the user must type before autocomplete and typeAhead activate (defaults to 4 if mode = 'remote' or 0 if mode = 'local', does not apply if editable = false).
