Hi all (yet again),

A quick one this time: http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-19589

I'm wanting to add a text property to ComboBox, to allow for people to 
easily set the text in the ComboBox without committing it to being a 
value. More importantly, this also allows for developers to extract the 
content of the ComboBox TextField without having to have end-users press 
the Enter key to commit the text into the value property.

Without this end users who want to support Enter-less committing of 
content have to reach into the ComboBox skin, which is not particularly 

Any thoughts?
