I have read several answers to this already but they don't work for my code or Iam not doing it right.
Here is my code. Once my dropdownlists are populated, I need  a blank line at the top.

ByVal oDr As OracleClient.OracleDataReader, _
                                                ByVal iPadSize As Integer, _
                                                ByVal iMode As enmActiveMode)
        Dim i As Integer

        With objddl
            .Items.Clear()
            If oDr.HasRows Then
                While oDr.Read
                    .Items.Add(rPad(Trim(oDr(0).ToString), " ", iPadSize) & _
                             " - " & Trim(oDr(1).ToString))
                End While
            End If

            If iMode = modStartup.enmActiveMode.amAdd Then    (this is true)
                ' add extra blank item
                .Items.Add("")                    (doesn't work)

            End If

I think it adds a blank line on the bottom. Try to movr it up

With objddl
            .Items.Clear()

            If iMode = modStartup.enmActiveMode.amAdd Then    (this is true)
                ' add extra blank item
                .Items.Add("")                    (doesn't work)

            End If


            If oDr.HasRows Then
                While oDr.Read
                    .Items.Add(rPad(Trim(oDr(0).ToString), " ", iPadSize) & _
                             " - " & Trim(oDr(1).ToString))
                End While
            End If
