Dear Andy

Thank you.

when you said this, "Then you are free to add or remove whatever code you want to." Is this a reference to the renamed cc file?  So that will mean that in the renamed cc file the we can add to existing code of function extcombox_onchange() method.

I think the above does not imply inheritance. Or may be I am wrong.

Further with extcombobox,  I observed that in the pattern scroll when it sees space it then stops there. This means it looks for 1st word matching. Can we use inheritance property to make it scroll for more than 1 word.

Best Regards
