Your combo box has inspired me to create my own. I'm not sure why I havent in the past... probably lazyness. It is also under 1k in size... perfect... and even more perfect it doesn't cause any bugs.
I still can't work out the cause of my initial problem as I have tried creating a simple example of the problem attaching and re-attaching m.c. with comboboxs and they work perfectly. However if I dont remove the comboBox from the mc in my real movie it starts acting strangely. Solution... dont use the components!. Thanks J.
yes, components are problematic. but if you try and create one you can see how it would be difficult to anticipate all the ways people would want to use it. plus, you start adding "features" (like responding to the enter key) and those features start causing problems for users that may want to use the enter key for something else.
i really think components should be like simple movieclips that you can add to your swf and can edit easily and customize easily. but that's just me.
