hi, how would i make my choice field to behave like the select of html? in html, it has two inputs one for value and another for description.
<select>
<option value="PRO">PROVINCE</option>
<option value="REG">REGION</option>
</select>
how can i do it in choice so that when i select it will return the value(PRO)?in choice field there's a method getSelectedItem(returns the description) and getSelectedIndex(return the index)
thanks....

Hi Raymond,
It is not possible using the AWT Choice component. The Choice component only supports String object therefore you can only use the label displayed as the key to figure out which one was selected.
Regards,
Manfred.
