Hi all,
 
This is my first post and have some experience with VB 2010.
 
Was wondering if someone could help me with a Combobox issue.
 
Basically i wish to put an Item in my Combobox such as lets say "Monday", when i push a button i wish for it to display that into a textbox as a shorter version such as "Mon".
 
So basically just looking for the combobox Item to be outputted as a shorter version.
 
Thanks in advance Smile | :)
