Auto highlighted combo boxes - why??

Hello,

On a form, I have a tab control with two tab pages. On one tab page, I have
about seven group boxes which I hide and make visible when buttons are
clicked on the tab page. No problems there.

In one of these group boxes, I have a few combo boxes, however some of them
are 'highlighted' for some reason when the groupbox is made visible. They're
NOT selected nor have focus!. When the user tabs to, or selects then moves
away from them, the highlighting disappears. I have no idea why? I've
checked the tabordering and there doesn't seem to be any conflicts.

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

I'm using .NET 1.1 C# with a standard Windows Forms project.

Jack.

A small issue. I use a combo box and when I want to have the value, I just type and the autofill finds the value. How to have the old value cleared when I want to type another value lateron? The old value is still in the window of the combo-box. Bart Acc 2003
