    How to select the first item of a DropDownList Combobox

    I have a combo box with four lines of data:

    Code:
    Reina Beatrix Arpt, Aruba, AW (AUA)
    Grantley Adams Intl Arpt, Barbados, BB (BGI)
    Owen Roberts Arpt, Grand Cayman Island, KY (GCM)
    Miami Intl, Miami, FL (MIA)
    Cyril E King Arpt, St Thomas, VI (STT)

    I want to write a program where I select the first item of a DropDownList Combo box (or the second, third, forth, and fifth item) and write an if... end if statement to specify a certain condition.

    This doesn't work
    Code:
    If Combobox1.Items.Items(0) Then
    TextBox1.Text = ....
    End if
    Thank you!

    use the selectedindex, + selecteditem, or text properties of your combobox

    the selectedindex ranges from -1 (no item selected) to items.count -1 (the last item)
    the text is what is displayed in the non dropdown part of your combobox
