Hi Peter, We were unable to reproduce the behaviour you state above. Can you post information on how we can reproduce what you are encountering so that we can take a look Regards, Arun

private void comboBoxExt1_Validating(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e) { // Logic code here // This code will get executed on the selection changed event if the user selected an item and during the validating event } private void comboBoxExt1_SelectionChangeCommitted(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { // check: is custom if (listControl1.SelectedIndex == -1) return; // validate this.comboBoxExt1_Validating(sender, null); }

Hi Peter, Thanks for the update. Validating will be called whenever the control loses focus and I guess that is what you are referring to when you say that it is called twice as it is called in your SelectionChangeCommitted event. You could overcome this by setting a boolean flag and toggle it's value in your validation logic of both SelectionChangeCommitted and Validating events to ensure that it is called only once.
