VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error

VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error

Has anyone come acorss a problem with the DBCombo.MatchedWithList property?

It appears that irrespective of a user's selection from the list, that this property is always 'false'. Everything else works just fine. I am using VB 5, SP3.



RE: VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error

I recently used the MatchedWithList property for the first time and I had a problem with it always returning false until...
After checking the DBCombo.MatchedWithList property I programmagramtically set the dBCombo.Text property. An example follows:

If DBCombo.MatchedWithList = False Then
MsgBox ("Select from list")
TestData.RecordSource = "SELECT [TestTable].* FROM [TestTable]"
DBCombo.Text = TableData.Recordset![TestName]
Exit Sub
End If

Does this help?

RE: VB 5.0 DBCombo MatchedWithList error

Thanks for the reply......that's essentially the solution I arrived at although slightly differently.....if you set
DBCombo.BoundText=DBCombo.BoundText (!) then it also appears to do the job....seems the DBCombo knows about the value but isn't passing it through somehow.
