eliminate search dialog on a combo box with few choices

Post by ddumas »

I have a form with a combo box (attached). When I select the down arrow, I get a search dialog box. Since there are only a few choices, I do not need that, and would prefer that the list of available choices show right away. I have looked for combobox settings, but cannot find anything that eliminates the search box. Any way to just show the list when the user clicks into the combobox?
Thanks,
Dave

I’ve never seen a search dialog box come up in that situation. Can you take a screenshot of that?

Attached. As soon as you press the down arrow on the combobox, this search dialog displays. I am using v8.4
