Actually I don't know much at all about interface builder.  I muddled  
my way through looking at articles I found on Apple's site and other  
bundles,etc.  I had been hoping that Allan would have had chance to  
put together some more screencasts about the TM_DIALOG which might  
have included some use of the other controls.  I'm not sure that what  
I did is the best solution by far. It still seems kludgey to me, for  
example in my dropdown, I can't figure out a way to get it to default  
to a given item so to workaround it I just added it twice, once at  
the top of the list so it's displayed by default and again in it's  
rightful alphabetic order. I'd definitely like to know if anyone can  
tell me a better way to do this.
