ComboBox::SelectionChangeCommitted Event

Occurs when the selected item has changed and that change is displayed in the ComboBox.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

 event EventHandler^ SelectionChangeCommitted {
	void add (EventHandler^ value);
	void remove (EventHandler^ value);

SelectionChangeCommitted is raised only when the user changes the combo box selection. Do not use SelectedIndexChanged or SelectedValueChanged to capture user changes, because those events are also raised when the selection changes programmatically.

You can create a SelectionChangeCommitted event handler to provide special handling for the ComboBox when the user changes the selected item in the list.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example uses the SelectionChangeCommitted event and the SelectionLength property to change the length of the text box depending on what the user has selected and committed.

   void comboBox1_SelectionChangeCommitted( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
      ComboBox^ senderComboBox = dynamic_cast<ComboBox^>(sender);

      // Change the length of the text box depending on what the user has  
      // selected and committed using the SelectionLength property. 
      if ( senderComboBox->SelectionLength > 0 )
		  textbox1->Width = 
			  senderComboBox->SelectedItem->ToString()->Length * 
		  textbox1->Text = senderComboBox->SelectedItem->ToString();
