[DevExpress Support Team: CLONED FROM T804278: ComboBoxEdit - The SelectedIndexChanged event is not firing for the same value]
I've successfully switched to LookUpEdit, however it's behaving a little different comparing to ComboBoxEdit. I am using these controls for listing and selecting existing users, but for creating new one (using in-line editor and keyboard) as well.1. LookUpEdit is not firing EditValueChanged event upon user's keyboard input in the control's editor. CBEdit is firing SelectedIndexChanged fine.
2. LookupEdit is not providing newly entered editor's value. CBEdit is providing it using .Text property.
Thank you for your kind help.
We have the How to: Add Value Entered by User to LookUpEdit's Data Source article that describes how you can handle user input in a lookup edit and convert it to a new value. Please test this approach. If it doesn't help and you still need further assistance, feel free to reactivate this thread and I will demonstrate this approach in the project from the original thread.
