Occurs when the combo box requests whether the users are allowed to input text in it.


AllowInputText(Data) Parameters
Data [in] Required Object
Result     Boolean  


Custom keyword test operations can use combo boxes and in-place editors in the Keyword Test editor. The AllowInputText is raised to determine whether the users are allowed to manually input values into the combo box, in addition to selecting values from the drop-down list.

The default event handler used by TestComplete always returns False, so that users cannot type into the combo box.


The event has the following parameter:


An object that provides access to the operation fields. This object contains properties that correspond to individual operation fields and whose names coincide with the field names.

Return Value

True if the users are allowed to input values in the combo box. False if the users can only select values from the drop-down list.
