Use the following ways to select and enter strings in a combo box control while a VI is in run mode:

  • Click the arrow button to the right of the control and select a string from the shortcut menu that appears.
  • Click the arrow button to the right of the control and use the up and down arrow keys to navigate to the string you want to select. After you highlight the string in the shortcut menu, press the <Enter> key or click the arrow button to select the string.
  • Place the cursor in the text box, press the down arrow key to display the shortcut menu, and use the up and down arrow keys to navigate to the string you want to select. After you highlight the string in the shortcut menu, press the <Enter> key or click the arrow button to select the string.
  • Click the arrow button to the right of the control and type the beginning letters of the string you want to select. LabVIEW highlights the first, shortest string in the control that begins with the letters you type. Press the <Enter> key or click the arrow button to select the string. If no strings match the letters you type and the control does not allow undefined string values, LabVIEW does not accept or display the letters you type in the control. If no strings match the letters you type and the control allows undefined string values, press the <Enter> key to enter the new string value in the control.
