Subject Re: combo box

Now there's a discussion about the comboBox, I'd like to address an issue. Sorry in advance
if it had been addressed already.

Using the component, one can set the selectedIndex or the selectedItem properties. There's
no way to set a 'selectedValue' property.
I've solved this by using a custom component based on what I found here.
The issue is that when you have a dataProvider with a collection of objects, you should be
able to set the selectedItem of the combobox based on one of the attributes of the object.
When the object has a property named 'customObjectID', one should be able to set the comboBox
'valueField' to 'customObjectID' and then set the selectedValue property to whatever value
the object's customObjectID is.
Is there a possibility to add this feature to ComboBox?
