Hi Peter, the combobox works nicely. I made a few changes to enhance it and avoid some unintended appearance:

  • Remove 'width' style from the wrapping <div>, since it made the browser calculate any surrounding table cell size incorrectly. (E.g. | %EDITFORMFIELD{...}% | )
  • Use {display: 'inline'/'none'} explicitly for the wrapping <div> instead of jQuery's .show() and .hide() which would revert the display value to 'block' in Chrome. The dropdown position was off when 'combobox' was used for PreferencesPlugin.
  • Clicking on the down-arrow icon second time hides the drop-down.

Thank you Mahiro-san for the nice enhancements!
