    Enhancement: Auto highlight search string in ComboBoxItem and perhaps normal ListGridField

    Hi Isomorphic,

    please see this online sample (SNAPSHOT_v12.0d_2017-08-13) with textMatchStyle: "substring" added:
        width: 500,
        numCols: 4,
        isGroup: true,
        groupTitle: "List - ComboBox",
        wrapItemTitles: false,
        fields : [{
            name: "bugStatus", title: "Bug Status", 
            editorType: "ComboBoxItem",
            valueMap : {
                "new" : "New",
                "active" : "Active",
                "revisit" : "Revisit",
                "fixed" : "Fixed",
                "delivered" : "Delivered",
                "resolved" : "Resolved",
                "reopened" : "Reopened"
            name: "itemName", title: "Item Name", editorType: "ComboBoxItem", 
            optionDataSource: "supplyItem", pickListWidth: 250, operator: "iContains", textMatchStyle: "substring"
    Now if you search for "roll":

    It would be great that if you enter "roll", all the "roll"-substrings from the results would be highlighted, like it happens e.g. here in google Analytics:

    This is of course minor and might be tough with ComboBoxItems with more complicated criteria, but is a nice GUI feature nevertheless.
    Perhaps internally, ListGridField will get a new API "setTextToHighlight(String text)" that will get applied to the DropDown ListGrid?
    That way, also ListGridFields in normal ListGrids displaying a filterRow could benefit from it.

    Best regards
