In addition, you can get the PopupPanel from the DefaultSuggestionDisplay and add your button as an "auto hide partner" (so that clicking on it while the popup is open doesn't auto-hide the popup, and you can thus call hideSuggestList from your ClickHandler to toggle the popup visibility). And of course you can implement your own SuggestDisplay based on, say, a ValuePicker.
Any ideas for this? (would be similar to this:
