Pity. :-( I was happy thinking I could do that as with wxPython.

I'll have to take a look at this. For now, all cases contained unique values,
so I could get the text and find the correct reference to it, but I would
really like having this possibility.
Do you think that using a dict would be enough? The key would be the position
in the combobox and the value would be what I want (either another number or
some text). I think it would be enough...
Subclassing QComboBox, on the other hand, might be interesting if I can make
this subclass behaves like a combobox with KDevDesigner.
Thanks for you help, Jim.
Be seeing you,
