We have a combobox that displays a list of dates for documents and the same date can be displayed multiple times.

The issue is that when items are selected that have the same date the wrong value can be returned.

It appears that the value of the first date in the list is the one that is always returned. This may be do to an assumption that all items in the list will have a different label.

I'm just a little confused... if all the dates are the same, what difference would it be to the user which one I picked? Also, if they are the same, how do you know it was the first item not selected vs what was in the list?

Finally, have you looked at DataView? Might be a better widget to use given your problem.
