thanks all experts for your help

I am using combobox with style csdropdownlist
and i need to show the text of the combobox
I had an answer that i can use combobox1.itemindex=the number of the item i want to show.
that's fine but what if the item i want to show is already chosen and i am getting it from a dataset and afcourse it matches with the item in the combobox
so i cann't use  combobox1.itemindex=the number of the item i want to show.
i need for example : combobox1:=datamodule1.table2['fieldname']

regards

use indexof to find the index of the desired item
combobox1.itemindex := Combobox1.indexof(datamodule1.table2['fieldname]); //as your example....

In your previous post, it was already stated ....


ComboBox1.ItemIndex := ComboBox1.Items.IndexOf(Some String of your's here);

which is the same thing

as

ComboBox1.ItemIndex := ComboBox1.Items.IndexOf(datamodule1.table2['fieldname'].asstring);

you just had to replace the string, which was
datamodule1.table2['fieldname'].asstring
