    Question display a file in dropdown edit box

    I have a dropdown edit box that I want to populate with a file, I have added under the properties the "accept files" But I am confused on how I can actually call the file and display the results.

    I'm sure I need to edit the block of code that represents this edit box, but can anyone help me with the concept of the file call and how to display it?

    Are you referring to an editable combobox?

    yes, and thank you so much for looking, I was begining to think I was a lepper.... No offense to any leppers out there...

    Its an edit combo box using a dropdown list, that I would like to call the contents of flat file when the dropdown arrow is initiated, I know how to add the into the properties portion, I see the option to accept file input, so I am convinced there has to be away to populate the list from a file.....

    Any help would really be appreciated, I have 3 books on visual programing and none of them have get that explicit..
