I took the code that Kelly wrote in this article on the ArcGIS Server Blog and updated it to use the latest API.

This works fine as is, but it uses the distinct ZONING_TYPE for both the label and the value of the combobox.

Let's say I wanted to use the ZONING_CODE as the label and the ZONING_TYPE as the value -- I can't seem to figure out how to add this to the store.

Thanks,
Glen
