ComboBox selected text position changes after selected item change

Hello,

I am using Windows Forms. I have a problem with ComboBox, selected text. My problem was, that text of some items was longer than the combo box -> I've solved this with properties:

myCombo.SelectionStart = 0
myCombo.SelectionLength = 0

That works OK for the first item. Of course, I don't see whole text, but at least I see text of the item from the start, which is good enough. But, if I select some other item from the combo box and it's text is longer than the combo I see only the end of the text -> but I must see text from the start.

I've also tried to catch SelectedIndexChanged event and re-set properties, without success:

        private void comboBox3_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            comboBox3.SelectionStart = 0;
            comboBox3.SelectionLength = 0;
        }


Any idea?


Greetins, Frenky

Depending on the data you use and what you do with it, you could also modify the text in the source with a Substring command so that it is not too long.

Thanks for answers.

I've managed to solve the problem, but not 100%. I put

comboBox.SelectionStart = 0;
comboBox.selectionLength = 0;

on key up and mouse over events. Default behaviour on selected item changed occurs every time - whole item is selected and you see only the end of it. WIth those two events, the selection is moved back to the start. Default behaviour cannot be overriden, but you can have affect on it after it happens.
