[Glade-users] ComboBoxEntry validation

But my drop down list is built with gtk.ListStore and I use .set_model. Doesn't ListStore have any methods 
that would help in validation? I found this on the web:
"The tree models derived from gtk.GenericTreeModel are protected from problems with out of date gtk.TreeIter 
objects because gtk.TreeIter objects are automatically checked for validity with the tree model."
But I don't know how to make use of it. Whould this help in validation comboBoxEntry entries agains the drop 
down list?

You need to catch the signal fired when the user types the ENTER key
("activate" I believe) and do the check yourself.

For comboBoxEntry fields that have a drop down list, is there a built-in
functionality to validate the input against the drop down list (so only
items from the list could be typed in) or I have to write my own validation
check. I don't want to use comboBox instead of comboBoxEntry because I want
the user to be able to start typing and then use EntryCompletion.

Thanks much,
