Read / Write Combo Boxs


This code will let you read in values from a file of your choice, probably a .ini or .txt into a combobox. It will also let you save the contents of the combobox to a file of your choice.
Example:
Call WriteCombo(combo1, "C:/example.ini")
or
Call ReadCombo(combo1, "C:/example.ini")
