combo box problem combo box problem FoxStudent (TechnicalUser) (OP) 31 Aug 00 03:32 When ever I use a comma in a combo box option when adding options manually it places the following text into a new option. How do i get over this? RE: combo box problem foxdev (Programmer) 31 Aug 00 10:24 FoxStudent, you left out exactly what the following text is; also, what combo box option (property?) are you trying to set?

I assume you are populating the recordsource property with your values and setting recordsourcetype to 1-value.Combo.RecordSource='Hey, This is your only choice.' yields:Combo.List(1)='Hey'Combo.List(2)=' This is your only choice.'If my assumption is correct, then the behavior you are referring to is by design. Recordsource uses the comma as a delimiter for the values and AFAIK, there isnt a way around that.Instead of setting recordsource='Hey, This is your only choice.'Add the item programmatically in the combo's init event.PROCEDURE Combo.Init() THIS.AddItem('Hey, This is your only choice.')ENDPROCAnd you should get the results you desire.
