How to add a combo box to a Data Card in a form?

I have an edit form and I would like to have a combo box instead of a dropdown box in one of the Data Cards. Is there a way to add combo box and then delete the drop down box or to change the combo box to a dropdown box?

Hi @ERWest ,

Please select the Form and Unlock the Card that has the dropdown box.
On the Menus go to Insert > Controls > Select Combobox.
Make sure you add the Combo box control inside the Card.

On the Card (Where both your combo box and drop down box is now located) change the Update() Property to:

ComboBoxName.Selected //It's usually name as "DataCard#"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
