combo box selector

Hello,
 
   Why doesn't the selector work on a combo box indicator? It works when  fine when I make the combo box a control, but then the user can type into the combo box and modify values.  I am using a combox box to allow the user to select from a list of strings that represent the last 8 unique commands that we sent to a piece of test equipment.

Hi Kaspar,
because an indicator is to show something and a control is to control something! Smiley Wink You can use an event case to check the user input or you can simply uncheck the "allow undefined strings" property. Smiley Happy

Hello,

  Well then what is a good way to present a list of strings to a user to pick from and not let them change the list?

Hi Kaspar,
is the combo box with the provided uncheck no solution for you? You can also use a Listbox to present a list of strings to the user. In the listbox the user can only select the entry, but can´t change it.

Hi Arjun,

 

I do not understand where in the problem you are.  You may have more luck restating your entire problem in a new thread instead of trying to reopen a thread that is 6 months old.  Thanks.
