css used:

Browser versions tested against:

FF3.6.8 (firebug 1.5.4 installed)

Operating System:

As already reported by a forum user here (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?105042-Combobox-click-on-quot-empty-text-quot-issue), there is an issue with the emptyText config option in ComboBox components when used along with certain other config options namely editable:false and forceSelection:true. The dropdown list does not expand when the field is clicked at a position where the emptyText is shown.

Test Case:

new Ext.form.ComboBox({
fieldLabel: 'Test',
hiddenName: 'test',
store: [['', 'none'], ['1ST', 'First option'], ['2ND', 'Second option'], ['3RD', 'Third option']],
mode: 'local',
triggerAction: 'all',
emptyText: 'Select an option...',
selectOnFocus: true,
forceSelection: true,
editable: false,
Steps to reproduce the problem:

Open examples/form/xml-form.js in your editor
Go to the item list of the FormPanel and add above code to the FieldSet
Open examples/form/xml-form.html in your browser
Click on the empty text in the ComboBox

The result that was expected:

Dropdown list should expand

The result that occurs instead:

Dropdown list does not expand
