Hello,

i am struggling to get the value of adxRibbonComboBox.

I set it at initializing like this:

            string[] combobox_items = new string[11];

            string year = DateTime.Today.Year.ToString();
            for (int i = 0; i < combobox_items.Length; i++)
            {
                combobox_items[i] = year;
                year  = (DateTime.Today.Year - (i+1)).ToString();
            }

            this.adxRibbonComboBox1.Items.Clear();
            
            for (int i = 0; i < combobox_items.Length; i++)
            {
                AddinExpress.MSO.ADXRibbonItem item = new ADXRibbonItem(this.components);
                this.adxRibbonComboBox1.Items.Add(item);
                item.Caption = combobox_items[i].ToString();
            }


Now i want to get the selected value and wirte it into a textbox like this:

txt_SearchString.Text = ???


I found "adxRibbonComboBox1.Items[1].AsRibbonItem.Caption;" but with this i will always geht item[1]. How can i get the selected value?

Okay, i solved it by myself. I changed the adxRibbonComboBox to adxRibbonDropdown.



int index = adxRibbonDropDown1.SelectedItemIndex;
            txt_SearchString.Text = adxRibbonDropDown1.Items[index].AsRibbonItem.Caption;


This works for me.

Hello Sebastian,

Great! According to the Office Ribbon Schema, only Dropdown and Gallery provide a way to get the item selected.
