Open combo box programmatically

I've not used it, but $sendevent seems to require additional parameters after the event name that come in name, value pairs.

Sends event iEvent (an ev... constant value) to the object with eventParameters passed as name,value pairs, for example $sendevent(evClick,'pLineNumber',2). Returns kFalse if the event is discarded; generates a debug error if there is a problem with the parameters. 

When entering a $sendevent method, typing Ctrl+Space after the quote lists the event parameter names.
