Further more, I don't think the TextChanged event is fired by the Insert
method. If so, the event will be fired recursively, untill the stack
overflows. Hence the problem should be other code.

| Hi, I have a simple windows form, with two ComboBox controls (and
| several other controls). For both of the comboBox controls,
| For some reason that I can't figure out, when the user pastes text
| into the comboBox, the event fires twice. At first I didn't notice
| this, but once I added error checking, I started seeing my error
| twice. Here some example code:
| private void comboBox_doit_TextChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs
| Does anyone know how to prevent the second event from firing? I have
| tried using BeginUpdate() & EndUpdate() around Items.Insert(), I have
| tried using a simple bool semaphore, I have even tried unregistering
| the event before calling Items.Insert(), and then adding a new event
| handler after it...
| I also can not figure out why this only happens to one of my
| comboBoxes, and not the other one... Hmmm...
| Alas, I am stuck... I would be grateful for any comments, suggestions,
| or advice...
| Many Thanks,
