View Full Version : Combo Boxes

08-07-2002, 09:38 AM
I wondered if anyone knew why it is that, on this site and many others, javascript-activated drop-down lists are called "combo boxes"? Coming from a windows background, I consider a combo box to be one which also allows entry by typing, not just selection from a list (i.e. a "combo"nation :-).

Secondly, I was wondering if anyone has come across anything which actually _does_ do the combo box without resorting to ActiveX components...

1) Never heard them called combo boxes

2) ActiveX is only way that I know of
