Hi,

I note a problem to enter some specials characters in a comboBox, if it is added in a AddinExpress.OL.ADXOlForm (himself add in a AddinExpress.OL.ADXOlFormsManager).
I try to explain with an example:
I'm french and I have an azerty french keyboard. And to make this character Ž, I follow this steps :
- enter "®" (obtain with Shift and "^®" touch) -> nothing are display, but it's memorized
- enter a letter, like "e" -> "Ž" is display.
But, if I enter "®"(with Shift) in the comboBox, it's directly display "®®". So I cant' enter the character "Ž" with the normal way.
If I make the same test with ê, I don't have the problem, because I don't use a combinated keys (don't need to press Shift)

I hope, you understand my problem. I'm sorry, but I don't have found an equivalent with a Belarus or US keyboard.

I think, it'a problem with interception of key events.

NB : I have tested with Add-in Express 2010 for Office and .NET ; 2010.6.3.3052 release

You can find the differents layout of keyboard here : KeyboardLayout
I think you can reproduct this phenomena if you change your keyboard in windows to a french one.
NB : the "^®" key corresponding to :
- belarus : "xX" key
- US : "[{" key.

NB : I try to make a ^ with a belarus keyboard with the 6 key, but I failed. So I can't see, if the problem exist in this case.
