I have a problem with the imageCombo

I am loading an imageCombo with  2 fields
Id and Description

I select an item in the combo and if the text (Combination ID-Description)
is bigger then the size of the combo then it moves the cursor to the very right of the imagecombo and very annoying for the user who has to press the back key till he can see all the text.

Is there any way i can select an item in the combo and move the cursor to the very left of the combo so that i can see the beginning of the text rather than the end?

thanks in advance

Try this:

Private Sub icYourCombo_GotFocus()
    icYourCombo.SelStart = 0
    icYourCombo.SelLength = 0
End Sub
