EnumEditBox enable drop down when clicking the box (instead of only the button)

Posted 8 months ago by Avatar Jacob Alley

As it stands, the dropdown is only opened when I click the drop down button, and not when I click anywhere on the box. I have looked at the source code and I am trying to determine what to tweak in order to correctly enable this behavior.

My best guess was to try:

<Trigger Property="IsFocused" Value="true">
<Setter Property="IsDropDownOpen" Value="True" />

in the ControlTemplate triggers inside of the Template of <Style x:Key="{x:Type editors:PartEditBox}" TargetType="{x:Type editors:PartEditBox}">,


but that did not work

Hi Jacob,

If you are on our newer Editors product (the newer codebase as of v2017.1), if the IsEditable property is false on the edit box, it will open the pop up when clicking anywhere in the control.  Are you not seeing that, or are you on the older codebase?

Im not using 2017, and will consider upgrading, is there anyway to accomplish it in an earlier version?

Hi Jacob,

I don't believe there are any options for supporting that in the older pre-2017.1 version of Editors.  You might be able to override its PreviewLeftMouseButtonDown event and open the popup if not already open, but that could lead to other issues with the checkbox, etc.

The 2017.2 version of Editors (a newer codebase) should support what you are looking for by default.
