is there a method for combo box flash component for having a specific item preselected in the list?

Hi, this could be an easy question. As the title of the question says is there a method for combo box components in Flash where I can use to have the combobox display/preselect a specific item in the list.


thanks

yes,

suppose your comboBox instance name is "myCombo" and you want to pre-select the third item...

use following code:
----------
myCombo.selectedIndex=2;
----------

index start from 0,

that so,
for first item, 0
for second item, 1
for third item, 2

thanks for the answer, I had tried a similar simple code that you gave here, but it didn't work initially. The problem was that I had put the code in my timeline before populating my combo box with items. So it could never preselect and display the item. I just had to move things around in my timeline in order to get it to work. Nevertheless, thanks for the answer.
