    SN-006943 ***Alert Note***

    Combo Box may not display blank value using Dropdown List

    Product: SAS/AF
    Component: General AF applications
    Priority: ALERT

      Within the Form Viewer control (starting with Release 8.1) or Version 6
      Data Form object in a SAS/AF FRAME entry, a blank value may not display
      for a column linked to a Combo Box control that has comboBoxStyle set as
      Dropdown List. Instead, the combo box may display the value for that
      column from the previous row.

      To circumvent the problem, change comboBoxStyle to Dropdown Combo.

      This problem can be replicated with a combo box outside of form viewer
      and data form, although it is most apparent within these two objects.

      This is only a problem on PC platforms.

      We are investigating the possibility of a hot fix for this problem.
