Hi,

I am looking for some help in creating a ComboBox control for one of the custom properties that is defined on a shape / object. Is this possible ? If yes, then how does one go about doing it ? If it is possible, it would be great if you could point to so

me resource or explain how to do it.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

    • Open the Custom Properties Window and select your shape. Right click in the

      window and choose Define Properties. Select the property you want to change

      from the list at the bottom of the dialog. Then change the Type to Fixed

      List or Variable List. In the Format field, enter the choices for the list

      separated by semi-colons. Then click OK. A Fixed List restricts the user

      to the choices in the Format field. A Variable List allows the user to

      enter a value that is not in the choices list.
