    Do you mean that you want to show the first item after clicking the button ?

  • Hi,

    after click on the button there should be nothing selected in the combo. it's set index to -1 but combo text is still showing item from first positon index 0

    Your code works fine on my system.
    But I'm using Qt 5.2.1.
    Which Qt version are you using ?

    It seems to be bug in Qt 5.2.0. It is solved in Qt 5.2.1
    See "this":
