Hi Tobias,

for me, it looks like ComboBox.Text is made only to show something like "Please 
select something" or "All entries". As soon as you select an item, ComboBox.Text 
is replaced by that item. I tried the Click and the Change event, and in both 
cases it's gone. Benoit might correct me here.

But this should be no problem: when you set ComboBox.Text, why don't you store 
your path in a variable and put it together afterwards with the selected item?
