Highlighting a string in combo box

Hi all


I would like to ask how to highlight/indicate an individual string in a combo-box programmatically. In my VI the user will select a string from the combo box to start some analysis. Whilst this analysis is taking place the same combo box is then used to select the next string. For ease of selecting I would like to highlight in the combo box which string/value was previously selected.


The highlighting can be of any kind ie bold text, text color etc. I understand that I could add a symbol to the string but this feels a little longwinded and not so neat.


Many thanks in advance!

You can Enable the "blinking" option and change the "Text BG color" when the new value is populated. But there can be a number of other ways to do it better.. This is what i came accross
