To use the combo box, all you have to do is type into the SELECT menu below. Your keystrokes will create a new option at the end of the list. When you are done typing, press
enter to exit “edit mode;” you can use
enter, but otherwise all non-printable keystrokes are ignored.
I’m aware of some bugs:
- Opera will report the up and down arrow as parentheses and ampersands.
- Some Mozilla browsers won’t immediately select the new option you are creating, if the text you enter begins with the same letter as an existing option; the second keystroke will select the new option.
Any fixes for these or other problems are gratefully received.
