In the form's OnCreate or OnShow event, add this line:

ComboBox1.itemindex := 1; { or whatever is the itemindex # of the item you want as default }

Yes, Sendo, I am sure. Unless you're willing to create a component that's a derivative from TCustomComboBox, and add an ItemIndex property to it, but that's even more trouble and hassle than what I've already suggested.

I would have to disagree, but it is really only a techinicality. You can set the ComboBox's TEXT property to read anything you like without it having to be an item in it's strings property.
