    Can I trigger a suggestionBox wtihout filter criteria?

      I’m currently using a rich suggestionBox component, and it’s working correctly.  However, I’m wondering if there is a way to trigger the suggestionBox to show up with no input, from a button-click?  If the user doesn’t know where to start, I’d like to provide a button that would bring you all of the suggestions without having to type in any text to use as a filter, if that makes sense. 

       

      I have my suggestionBox tied to a database, so it will find suggestions where the field is “ like ‘%’ ”, so the back end would work if you entered nothing, I’m just not sure how to trigger the suggestionBox to pop up.

       

      I'm using RichFaces version 3.3.3.

       

      Thanks.
