I have in a Visual Basic 6 program a Combo box full of data and I want the user to be able to select through the drop down menu and get a choice. I  have about 5 of these. I am wanting to have a RESET button at the bottom where it will set all of the combo boxes back to blank but still keep the values in the list.

Please help.

do u load data into the combo box at runtime?
if so then add a blank item at the begginning

cbo1.additem ""

cbo2.additem ""


otherwise at design time just add a blankitem at the top...

onclick of the reset button...

cbo1.listindex=0

cbo2.listindex=0

hope this helps....

also on loading the form if u want to select the first value then just write this in the form_load event

cbo1.listindex=1
cbo2.listindex=2

ps: pls replace cbo1,cbo2 with the respective names that u r using

Just set the Text value of the ComboBox to "".

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    For i = 0 To Combo1.UBound
        Combo1(i).Text = ""
    Next i
    ' If they are not part of a control array then you have to do each one individually
End Sub
