Multiple ComboBoxes reference the exact same list. Is there a better way?
Posted on 2003-12-01
I've got a question regarding the best approach to a problem. I have an application that requires a selection box providing a list of items. I need that same list of items in twenty other locations in the program. Is there a better way than to populate those 20 comboboxes with the same stringlist derived from a table? The problem also, is that each of these comboboxes need to retain the selection made. If I use a dbcombo, the selection does not remain when another dbcombo makes a selection on the same table. I've tried dblookupcomboboxes as well. I also am concerned with the memory needed to have twenty comboboxes all with the same data to list. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
