In researching on the internet it seems the equivalent to vba's ListIndex should be SelectedIndex.

However this does not seem to be a property of the combobox in ArcGIS when the combobox is created as an add-in?

Anyone find a way around this outside of rebuilding the combobox in a form to gain all the funcionality? I'd really like to keep it a simple add-in as that is all I need for everything other than this...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
