KeywordFilterField displays * Empty * before display the real thing.

I use a KeywordFilterField to add search function to my application, but what annoyed me is that the KeywordFilterField always displays * Empty * before it displays the correct thing, in other words the KeywordFilterField displays  * Empty * at the first time (though it's a very short period of time), and then it begins to display the real thing that should be displayed. You can see it in the "KeywordFilterDemo". OS 5 and OS 6.

 

Is there a way not to display the * Empty * at the first time , but directly display the real thing? Like the system's Files application.

Re: KeywordFilterField displays * Empty * before display the real thing.

Thank you simon, you may misunderstand my meaning, I mean the field first displays the "Empty String", though it's a very short period of time(0.2 second maybe), compare with the ObjectListField you can notice that.


If you mean set the "Empth String" to a empty string, it's also not a good idea(will show just blank area).


I believe there's a solution, because the System's "Files" applications and other applications don't display the annoying "* Empty *", it directly displays the real thing.

well, it seems to take some time to fill the list.
if you set it to "" the empty will be gone at least.
