Detecting key press events on an editable combo box

    I've got a combo box that also allows the user to type in i.e. I make
    it editable. When it's in edit mode, I want to be able to detect when
    the user starts typing. I've tried adding event handlers to catch
    keyPressed and keyTyped events, but my event handler does not get
    called.
    The event handler does get called though when the combo box is in
    non-edit mode, and populated with entries.
    Is there any way I can catch keypress events in an editable combo box?
