Hello Experts!

I have attached the code snippets below. Basically I am building a ComboBox in code. The box itself is on the window but I am generating all of the contents in code.

ComboBox WPF Control
<ComboBox x:Name="cboReminderTime" Text="Please select an item" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="150,588,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120"/>

Open in new window


ComboBox Population Control (Snippet)
if (intHoursTillEvent >= 24)
            {
                cboReminderTime.Items.Clear();
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("15 Minutes");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("1 Hour");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("3 Hours");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("6 Hours");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("12 Hours");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("24 Hours");
                cboReminderTime.Items.Add("Start Now");

            } // closes >= 24 hours

Open in new window


There are many other hour values it will evaluate against. In all of them, the "15 Minutes" option is the first one in the list and the one I want to set as the default.

I am very new to C# and brand new to WPF. I have VB.Net (WinForm) experience so I am picking this up with decent pace, but I am not getting this one. Google is not being the most helpful this morning either (prob my fault).

Thanks for the help guys and gals!
