Setting An AW.UI.Combo's Value

So, I instantiate a combo box using:

var versionCombo = new AW.UI.HTMLStripCombo();

How does one set the combo to a value in the array of values, in this case vers_val[]?

The line in bold is incorrect, since it seems to do nothing. Using setControlText() just sets the displayed text and not the control's value.

My bad. I guess nested styling tags don't work in this discussion forum.

Just use an aditional setItemValue(array)

And in your case could be resumed as follows:

set values
versionCombo.setItemValue(["id", "name", "date"]);
set Texts
versionCombo.setItemText(["Number", "Account", "Operation Date"]);
set Selection:
versionCombo.setSelectedItems([1]); /// note the brackets
and to know the selected value, use
var selected_value = versionCombo.getItemValue(versionCombo.getSelectedItems());

Carlos, thanks, but it's not working. I'm using:


and the combo's text box remains empty. No error, though. And the value is in fact set, just not displayed. IOW, the call to getItemValue() returns the right option from the drop-down, but the display hasn't been adjusted.

Don't know if there is a better way, but here's one option:

Forgot to add, the call to setControlText() should come after the call to setSelectedItems(), for obvious reasons.
