"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you call to your TextBox "Text1" and to your ComboBox "Combo1" ,add timer , set the interval to 100 (or less) and write this code in the timer :

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Text1 = Combo1.List(Combo1.ListIndex)
End Sub

This will write in the TextBox the selection in every 10ms .
You can write Select Case and write something else in the TextBox .
