Hi

I have a problem with the first time that I click on a combobox.

I have
cmbDept.SelectedItem = NewItem
cmbDept.Text = NewItem

which is supposed to display the string in NewItem but it doesn't the first time it is clicked, it displays the first item in the list.
If it is clicked again it displays the string correctly.

All help appreciated.

Regards

Where are you running this code ?

So, as I can gather from your code you want to highlight the value of NewItem in the combo cmbDept ?

Hi

Solved the problem.
The combobox was not visible until after the text was set. Once I made it visible before then everything worked OK.
Thanks for the replies
