I do something like this:

listeners: {
'afterrender': function(component, args) {

where 'default' is the key for the item I want selected.

There is also a value property on combos that will do it for you if you know the value

Thanks for the reply, but my requirement is a little different.

I think this setValue is just writing the string on the combobox.

However, i want my data to be displayed

I tried

component.setValue(1);but doesn't work.oh, i also add id on my data for this.

What do you mean by "want my data to be displayed"? Are you listening to an event on the combo?

my data means what i declared. 'option1' and 'option2'

i want to display 'option1' on the combobox

setValue or the value property require a value. This value is not necessarily what is diplayed in the box (the displayField). If the valueField on the combo is something like 'id' you would use the id for the record you want. If the valueField is not set on the combo its not going to work.

so if your combo's valueField is 'id' and your combo's store contains a record that is
id: 7,
text: 'whatever'

you can say yourCombo.setValue( 7 )
