[izpack-devel] search input field without choices

If I use a search field in a UserInputPanel but don't include any
<choice> elements, the installer crashes with a
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException on startup. Not using
<choice> elements is useful where I just want a file picker. The
following patch fixes the crash.
