I was wondering if anyone oculd tell me if there was a way to assign values to combo box items so that when the user selects an item I can immediately reference the numeric value of the item. Like in html where you write: <select> <option value="12345">Option A</option> <option value="67890">Option B</option> </select> I know how to read the item text or selected index and then use a conditional statement but that seems like a lot of unnecessary work. Thanks.

You can put whatever type of object you desire in a ComboBox. You could put a custom type of object in it that has a name and a value:
You would then use
And you could make the value any type that you want. It wouldn't have to be a String.
