To all
Perhaps someone has queried about it before but i am not sure what to call an interface where the user makes a selection from one combobox into another.
Something like 2 comboxes with arrow between them pointing in either direction, hence to add to the selection you click one arrow to take from the other. I am interested in using one in an interface but cannot find a example with source code and dont really know what they are called.
Thanking you for any possible help and sorry for my confusing description
