    Multiple column's in VB's ComboBox (VB6)

    I gather that the generic ComboBox with VB6 does not support multiple columns?

    VB comboboxes of all sorts are a deep disappointment to those of us used to the features of Access comboboxes. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    What do people do when they need to reference a value normally provided by a hidden column, use an after market control?

    Personally? I build the application in Access instead. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Well, you did leave yourself wide open for it. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Seriously, this is exactly why I don't build database applications in VB. It's so frustrating to have to use third party controls or write a bunch of code to do things that are built into Access, that I save myself the frustration.
