How can you limit the information displayed in a combo box (Box 2) to a range of items based on a combo box (Box 1) selection made a set or two before such that no other selections show in Combo Box (Box 2) ?
If I have ten different weight ranges that can be selected in Box 1, I want to be able to limit the possible selections shown and selectable in box 2.  I tried using an "On Leave" statement for Box 1 and also tried "If box 1 = "XXXX" then List = " item1, item 2, item3, ... item N" but neither as you would expect in a language such as C, VB, C++, Java so I'm stuck.

Sometimes people get stuck with trying to use 'expected' properties of objects in the UI for which the properties dont seem to be exposed. Classic example is trying to add an image to a button. This is not something for which the base customisation framework allows you to do.

What you need to is reference the object dynamically using its GUID like the example below:
     // Search 3b06b8f2-a9d0-44d0-9aa1-4db6ddc60c77
        this.EpiBtnC1 = (EpiButton)csm.GetNativeControlReference("8b22e8f2-42d0-4d70-ab0c-77e5fc042392");
        EpiBtnC1.ImageList = imageList;
        EpiBtnC1.Appearance.Image = 0;          // calcfield image
        EpiBtnC1.Appearance.ImageHAlign = Infragistics.Win.HAlign.Left;
        EpiBtnC1.Appearance.ImageVAlign = Infragistics.Win.VAlign.Middle;
        EpiBtnC1.PressedAppearance.Image = 0;   // image when pressed
        EpiBtnC1.ImageSize = new System.Drawing.Size(16,16);

Perhaps if you use this approach to add List items to your 2nd combobox.
