when you use name/value pair in a string assigned to the combobox and want to hide the value and just show the name in the dropdown you have to do a owner draw something like this


procedure comboboxDrawItem(Control: TwinControl; Index: Integer; Rect : TRect; State: TOwnerDrawState);


 combobox.Canvas.TextRect(Rect, Rect.Left, Rect.Top, combobox.Items.Names[index]);



This will show just the name portion of the name/value pair in the dropdown. The value is still there but just is hidden.


So I want to hide the values and only show the names.
