I have been using Vb for years and I am just starting to learn .Net, which is considerably different from previous version. In a test program I wrote I am filling a combobox as follows:
Dim i as Integer
For i = 1 to 5
ComboBox1.Items.Add("Selection: " & i)
When I run this program the Combobox is populated with what I told it to, but when the combo dropsdown none of the text is visible on the list. I can select a blank item and it will put in the correct thing, so i know it filled the list, but it is a bit hard for the end user to know what to select if they can't see the items on the list.
I am using the following:
Windows XP SP2 with all the latest updates. XP Firwall is disabled.
McAffee AntiVirus 8.0i
Sygate Personal Firewall Ver. 5.5 Build 2710
Windows Development Eviroment 2003 Ver. 7.1.3088
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Ver.1.1.4322 SP1
Microsoft Visual Basic .Net Standard 2003
