(OP)
Hello,

I am dutch student that makes databases to pay for his study.
I have a question about a dropdownlist.
I am currently developping an sales-relation system in Foxpro. Everytime when an company is selected in a form, an sql selection searches the contactpersons from that firm an places the results in an array (arr_contact).
This works fine, when I look in the debugger screen for arr_contact it has the good values. The array always has the good values ! But now my problem : When I select an customer for example “ABLEF1”, that has 3 contactpersons those 3 will be showed in the dropdownlist correctly. But… when  I select another customer “ABLOB3” with 1 contactperson, it shows then the person and two EMPTY fiels in the dropdownlist.
I want to get rid offf those empty fields but I don’t know how to manage that.

Thanks in advance for your help.


RE: empty fields in dropdownlist, help

Hi Pomawo,
 after you do your query to the array, do a requery of the combobox.

Example:
thisform.[comboboxname].requery()

Better yet, use NumberOfElements property!
