Property Value

Type: System.String

The text associated with this control.

Setting the Text property to null or an empty string ("") sets the SelectedIndex to -1. Setting the Text property to a value that is in the Items collection sets the SelectedIndex to the index of that item. Setting the Text property to a value that is not in the collection leaves the SelectedIndex unchanged.

The following code example demonstrates how to initialize a ComboBox control by setting the Text property and using the AddRange method to populate the ComboBox. It also demonstrates handling the DropDown event. To run the example, paste the following code in a form and call the InitializeComboBox method in the form's constructor or Load event.
