    Question What is the Combo Box object expression to read text typed into the combo box?

    Hey, folks! I have a simple question which I can't seem to find the answer (because I am running way SLOOOW today).

    What is the expression in the Combo Box object to acquire what is typed into the combo box? I am not referring to the expression to acquire "the text of the currently selected line." I am referring to when the user actually types into the combo box.

    When I use the expression "Combo Select$" it doesn't work. When I try to use the expression "Get line data," I can't seem to enter an appropriate value/text for the "index" parameter.

    Thanks for your help!

    Doh! I knew I was having a really SLOOOW day... That expression is now starring me in the face...

    I have a follow-up question, though: Is there a condition that differentiates between when a selection is made from the combo box versus whether text was typed into the combo box? I know that the expression "Combo Box Line Text$ of Combo Select" is used to specify text from the drop-down selection. Is that same condition used for typed text? Or is there a different expression/condition?

    Thanks again, Jeff!
