End users are allowed to change the editor's edit value by either selecting an item from the dropdown list or entering new values into the edit box.


End users are allowed to change the editor's edit value only by selecting an item from the dropdown list.


The DropDownStyle property is set to DropDownStyle.DropDownList by default. This means that the Combo Box does not allow values that are not listed within the editor's server-side BootstrapComboBox.Items collection. Additionally, modifications to the client-side item collection are not synchronized with the server side, regardless of the BootstrapComboBox.EnableSynchronization property's value.

This property is a wrapper of the BootstrapComboBoxProperties.DropDownStyle property. Please refer to its description for more information.
