Populating the combo box dynamically

How do I populate the combo box dynamically using Lotus script?
If you're using a combo box in a workspace.Prompt() method, it's just one of the parameters - just pass in a string array (I think a variant works, too). If you are talking about a combo box on the form, it's a tiny bit more complicated, but not much. All you need to do is have a "helper" field, a multi-value text field, which the combo box's property to get elements is computed to equal, and then use your lotusscript code to populate that text field with a list of string values. You can then hide the helper field so no one sees it. Hope this helps!
