Gtk2::ComboBoxEntry - A text entry field with a dropdown list

# the easy way
$combo_box_entry = Gtk2::ComboBoxEntry->new_text;
foreach (qw(one two three four five)) {
    $combo_box_entry->append_text ($_);
# or the powerful way.  there always has to be at least
# one text column in the model, but you can have anything
# else in it that you want, just like Gtk2::ComboBox.
$combo_box_entry = Gtk2::ComboBoxEntry->new ($model, $text_index);
# to mess with with entry directly, get the child:
$current_text = $combo_box_entry->child->get_text;

A ComboBoxEntry is a widget that allows the user to choose from a list of valid choices or enter a different value. It is very similar to a ComboBox, but displays the selected value in an entry to allow modifying it.

The ComboBoxEntry has a Gtk2::Entry as its child. To get or set the currently-displayed text, just manipulate the entry normally.

$entry = Gtk2::ComboBoxEntry->new ($model, $text_column)
