Subject:ComboBox and TabPanel
From:Willie (

i have got two problem, using a ComboBox on a TabPanel. It's quite simple. On a simple TabPanel i add two tab's. The first one with a textfield and the second one with the Combobox. The ComboBox has an attacht store. First, if i start this simple app, there is a cpu load of 20% (on my machine) and the app is comsumpting memory. Second, i can't change the text of the second tab. There is no error but the changing will not be displayed. (Lazy loading problem?) If i switch to the panel with the Combobox the cpu load will drop to 0 and everything is alright. Now i can switch between both panels without any problems.

If i change the two panel, first adding the combobox panel and then the textfield, everything is working.

Some code for this:
