ComboBox dropdownlist index - How do I get the value?
Posted on 2000-04-07
This is my problem:
I have a form with a subform on it.
When I put a combobox on my subform, I can no longer select an item from the list.
If anybody knows about this problem and knows how to solve it, please tell me, but I'm guessing this is a functionality that is not supported by MS-Access.
Next step is to find a way to work around this problem.
I know how to change the value of my ComboBox, how to change the dropdownlist displayed and how to get the value for a record in the dropdownlist through it's indexnumber.
What I don't know is how to get the indexnumber for the record selected in the dropdownlist. I've checked the access-helpfile and can't find a property that contains the indexnumber.
I think access stores this into some temporary variable somewhere, but what's the name of this variable???
