facebook autocomplete textbox question.


Hi I am trying to implement this feature. i have the popupscreen with manager to paint and layout the fields. I have customtextfield (editfield) and customobjectchoicefields added.


The autocomplete part works and I can properly populate the choicefield. But when I try to invoke the choicefield (via invokeaction) the focus remains their unlike the facebook application.




Any ideas how to do this.

Re: facebook autocomplete textbox question.

they do not set the focus on the choicefield but change it only.
they use an internal rim field you can't access, so i am not able to tell you exactly how they do it.
