I want to retain the combo box values.

My requirement is something like this.

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.

Thanks

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.
