 Description  « Hide

I have a swing app with a JComboBox. I install AutoCompleteSupport using an EventList populated with
"Monkey", "Moose", "Mouse", ... and other entries. I type "mo" into the combobox, with the intention of
selecting "Moose". "Monkey" appears in the text area of the combobox, because that's the first match
for "mo". So far, so good. Then, I press the down arrow to open the popup. "Monkey" is selected.
Pressing down arrow again highlights "Moose". I hit enter, expecting "Moose" to be placed in the text
part of the combobox, but that doesn't happen. It remains "Monkey"

I suspect this is another issue of OS X UI.

I'll try it out on a windows box later. Source code to reproduce the issue is follows. I made a little
screencast to show you what I mean here:, in which I also
talk about GLAZEDLISTS-458.

Thanks for the good work!
