Hello everyone,
Is there a way I can get the index and the string in a dropdown menu selection?
I had the idea to set up this pice of code in the openinfunction to change the DropDown.Value to the index
Later I would get the index with
val = DropDown.Value;
and the string with
Str = DropDown.Items{val};
Do you know of a better way since my method seems to be too complicated. Thanks for any help!
Regards J.

If you need the index and the string, then the way you're doing it is good.
If you just need the string, you should do away with ItemsData and just do
Str = DropDown.Value;
