[CLOSED] [2.0 M2] ClassCastException using ComboBox and Binding
Using binding with ComboBox throw a ClassCastException cause the FieldBinding call the "setValue" method on ComboBox field with a String value in parameter and setValue is waiting for a BaseModel value.
FieldBinding should call setValueField when binding to a ComboBox
This is not really an issue. You need to use a converter. It works the same way as in a CellEditor. I am closing this issue.
