    Default [6.6.0 classic] Ext.form.field.Combobox validation issue when forceSelection+formBind

    In a very specific scenario, Ext.form.Panel's buttons with 'formBind' won't be enabled when valid value is chosen to a combo box.

    - A form panel, with a combo box and buttons
    - The combo box should initially have no selected values
    - The combo box should have 'forceSelection: true', and 'allowBlank: false'
    - The form panel should have at least one of the buttons with 'formBind: true' set

    If you feed an invalid vaue in the combo box's input field, it will trigger its 'validityChange' event. But 'forceSelection' will force it back to empty. The validity state of the combo box will then still read as not valid (as the whole form).

    If then (after choosing that invalid value) you select a valid entry from its dropdown list, the 'validityChange' event won't fire. Queryting the form's or field's 'isValid()' will return true, yet the buttons won't be enabled.

    The way to fix this is ensure the combo box calls 'checkValidityChange(combobox.isValid())', which can be just added to the 'select' event of the combo box, or also just updating the combobox's 'wasValid' during the 'beforeselect' event. The latter approach is applied in the fiddle provided below.

    Here's the fiddle with details to reproduce it, and the above mentioned workaround:

    This issue has been around since at least version 5 series, yet I couldn't find an open thread that clearly refers to this specific issue.
