Editable combobox

I am having a very basic question. I do know what combo box is. It is nothing but a drop down having few items available for use to select. Use can select any one item from available option. Question is about editable combo box. Can someone help me understand what does this mean?

A non-editable combobox allows the textbox to have only values that come from the dropdown choices. An editable combobox lets the user to select from the dropdown and/or to type and edit the textbox string.

if it is about qt, then maybe this discussion can help you https://forum.qt.io/topic/103061/how-to-create-an-editable-combo-box Your main problem would be coding the validator for your use case. https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/qintvalidator.html
