Text Combobox Query Editor

Description

A text combo box is a feature that allows you to filter the elements in the list by typing in, unlike the normal combo box. It is useful in a very long list. It has the ability to select only the items in the opened list by using the "Full match" option, as well as searching the list even if it is not in the list. 

Properties

Full match : When this property is checked, list contents that match exactly with the value written are listed. For example, AN, ANK etc. can not be used in order to list ANKARA, so ANKARA should be written.
