What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i use "c" grades sparingly, take a look at my profile.

anyways, the first answer gave no selection in the combo box.  (it was blank, no item at all)

your answer gave me the item i wanted, but the text within the combobox was selected (which is what i was asking how not to do)

the reason your code doesnt work, is it selects the text as position zero.  mine selects the text at the last position, or so to speak, leaves it unselected.  

you didnt provide me with a thourough answer, thats why i gave you a "c"
