Display Combo description

I have created a Combobox inside a form,

I had values to it using the below code

oComboBox.ValidValues.Add(oRecordSet.Fields.Item(0).Value, oRecordSet.Fields.Item(1).Value)

But when i select from Combo, only the value gets displayed and not the description

Can anyone help me?

    The DisplayDesc property of the item can be set to True to display the description in the Combo Box. Note that this property is on the Item object, not on the ComboBox specific properties

    If loading from XML you can set the "disp_desc" attribute of the item to "1" to get the equivalent effect.

      Hi Gerold, the Item.DisplayDesc = false doesn't work for 6.5 on patch 20 as I've done this in several places without any success. I think I might need to upgrade to service pack one.

      Yes I have managed to register my add-on but I am using C# for my add-ons - I posted my C# for registering add-ons in this forum several days ago. I use Delphi when using the DI API, not the UI API as too many of the UI SDK properties are read-only in Delphi, (well it was several months ago when I was testing the UI in Delphi)
