Ola,

How do I know that the selectedIndex has changed from a VB 6.0 ComboBox, I am missing the needed events to do it.
Does someone know a workaround?

Hi DaFou,

Use the ComboBox_Click() event rather than the Change event. The Change event fires when you enter in the text-edit section of a combobox which is not defined as a fixed list. The click event fires when one of the items is selected either using the keyboard or mouse as appropriate.

Hi,

Addition to my comment even if you change the ListIndex of the combo box the Click event fires.

Eg:
Combo1.ListIndex = 2

Ya TimCottee that is what I have shown DaFou in my first comment. Anyways, I hope we are helping him.

Keep the good work going on. Cheers!
