Hello Pattu,

The sure thing is that if you set on the zul script or from java code the property readonly="true" it will work (tested in ZK 8).


  <window border="normal" title="Readonly combobox" apply="pkg$.TestComposer">

    <div>Cannot narrow items by writing in Readonly combobox</div>

        <combobox id="cbx"  autocomplete="true">
          <comboitem value="aaaaaaaa" label="aaaaaaaa" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaaaab" label="aaaaaaab" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaaabb" label="aaaaaabb" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaabbb" label="aaaaabbb" />
          <comboitem value="aaaabbbb" label="aaaabbbb" />
          <comboitem value="aaabbbbb" label="aaabbbbb" />
          <comboitem value="aabbbbbb" label="aabbbbbb" />
          <comboitem value="abbbbbbb" label="abbbbbbb" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaaaac" label="aaaaaaac" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaaacc" label="aaaaaacc" />
          <comboitem value="aaaaaccc" label="aaaaaccc" />


package pkg$;

import org.zkoss.zk.ui.*;
import org.zkoss.zk.ui.event.*;
import org.zkoss.zk.ui.util.*;
import org.zkoss.zk.ui.ext.*;
import org.zkoss.zk.au.*;
import org.zkoss.zk.au.out.*;
import org.zkoss.zul.*;

public class TestComposer extends GenericForwardComposer{

    Combobox cbx;

    public void doAfterCompose(Component comp) throws Exception {
