Re: Trigger a GtkEntryCompletion's popup

I had issues with GtkComboBoxText last time I tried it, though admittedly that was a long time back. Anyway, yes I'm aware of these widgets, and use GtkComboBox regularly. I'll look into GtkComboBoxText again. But the question remains - is there a way to trigger the completion's popup?

Maybe you want a


with active entry widget (has-entry = TRUE) ?

So you can select from a list of text or enter own text.
