As soon as the application starts, user cliks an icon, a combo box appears, user selects a value from the drop down, whenever the user clicks the icon and combo box appears, the same value should be retained.
Never take anything for granted because you never know when you will lose it
I may not be understanding your question, you want to select an item in the comboBox and that item be displayed in index 0 of the box, or do you want the original value to be displayed?
To keep the original, because if I remember, the comboBox switches the selected item to index 0 of the comboBox, you could keep a vector of objects to populate the box, then after you select, you can repopulate. You may have to separately save the selected item to an instance variable.
There may be a built in method to not retain selectedItem in view, I have not researched it.
