Hello Everyone

For your information, setting entityComboBox.setFieldEditable(true) or false causes a java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException and I have reproduced this in Mario’s Petclinic example with the following code:


<entityComboBox dataContainer="veterinarianDc" property="specialties" id="entityComboBox"/>


private EntityComboBox<Specialty> entityComboBox;

protected void onAfterShow(AfterShowEvent event) {

at io.jmix.ui.component.impl.EntityComboBoxImpl.setFieldEditable(EntityComboBoxImpl.java:177)
at io.jmix.petclinic.screen.veterinarian.veterinarian.VeterinarianEdit.onAfterShow(VeterinarianEdit.java:36)
at io.jmix.core.common.event.EventHub.publish(EventHub.java:170)
at io.jmix.ui.screen.Screen.fireEvent(Screen.java:124)
at io.jmix.ui.screen.UiControllerUtils.fireEvent(UiControllerUtils.java:58)

Please note that this does not occur with the the tagPicker component in the Petclinic example. Thanks in advance for correcting this.

Best regards


entityComboBox doesn’t support setFieldEditable method. This method is only available for EntityPicker. If you describe your task, I’d try to suggest a solution.



Hi Gleb

Thank you for the quick feedback. I do not actually need this method; I simply found this error after I replaced my EntityPicker with the EntityComboBox. And since the studio code-completion still provides this method as a possible selection, I could only assume that it is supported. Then I guess it should just be removed from the code-completion options but that is your decision. Thanks again.

Best regards
