Setting the Default Value of a ComboBox in VB.Net: A Guide


Solution 1:

 ' Your code filling the combobox '
 If myComboBox.Items.Count > 0 Then
     myComboBox.SelectedIndex = 0    ' The first item has index 0 '
 End If

Solution 2:

Simply navigate to the properties of the combo box and modify the DropDownStyle to “DropDownList”.

This action will reveal the initial item.

Solution 3:


It is possible to include this information within your program.

Private Sub ComboBoxExp_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)Handles MyBase.Load
    AlarmHourSelect.Text = "YOUR DEFAULT VALUE"
    AlarmMinuteSelect.Text = "YOUR DEFAULT VALUE"
End Sub

Upon program initiation, the assigned default value is set before selecting the desired option from the drop down list, which can be easily accessed. Additionally, maintaining the DropDownStyle as DropDownList enhances the program’s visual appeal.
