Example

The following code snippet demonstrates how you can populate a TcxComboBox component at run time. In this example, the code resides in the OnShow event handler of the form containing the combo box, so that items are added to the combo box when the form is about to be displayed on screen:

JavaScript, JScript

function UserForm1_OnShow(Sender)
{
  // Specify the comma-separated item list
  UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.CommaText = "Item1,Item2,Item3,Item4,Item5";

  // -- or

  // Specify the item list separated by new line symbols
  // UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.Text = "Item1\r\nItem2\r\nItem3\r\nItem4\r\nItem5";
}

Python

def UserForm1_OnShow(Sender):
  # Specify the comma-separated item list
  UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.CommaText = "Item1,Item2,Item3,Item4,Item5"

  # -- or --
  
  # Specify the item list separated by new line symbols
  # UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.Text = "Item1\r\nItem2\r\nItem3\r\nItem4\r\nItem5";

VBScript

Sub UserForm1_OnShow(Sender)
  ' Specify the comma-separated item list
  UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.CommaText = "Item1,Item2,Item3,Item4,Item5"

  ' -- or

  ' Specify the item list separated by new line symbols
  ' UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.Text = _
  '     "Item1" & vbNewLine & "Item2" & vbNewLine & "Item3" & vbNewLine & "Item4" & vbNewLine & "Item5"
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure UserForm1_OnShow(Sender);
begin
  // Specify the comma-separated item list
  UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.CommaText := 'Item1,Item2,Item3,Item4,Item5';

  // -- or

  // Specify the item list separated by new line symbols
  // UserForms.UserForm1.cxComboBox1.Properties.Items.Text :=
  //     'Item1'#13#10'Item2'#13#10'Item3'#13#10'Item4'#13#10'Item5';
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function UserForm1_OnShow(Sender)
{
  // Specify the comma-separated item list
  UserForms["UserForm1"]["cxComboBox1"]["Properties"]["Items"]["CommaText"] = "Item1,Item2,Item3,Item4,Item5";

  // -- or

  // Specify the item list separated by new line symbols
  // UserForms["UserForm1"]["cxComboBox1"]["Properties"]["Items"]["Text"] = "Item1\r\nItem2\r\nItem3\r\nItem4\r\nItem5";
