Hi:

I'm using a Combobox in .Net 2.0 winforms. The DropdownStyle for the combobox is set to DropDownList. When the combobox first displays, the edit portion shows a blank (indetermanite state).
I would like to programmatically reset this property so it's back to the indetermanite state.

Is there any way to do this without adding a blank ("") entry to mycollection list?

Thanks,
JohnB

It should just be like this: comboBox1.SelectedIndex = -1;
0
