Incomplete Post: How do you set the value of a picklist field in c#?

I am new to developing with the Infor CRM web client.  I need to set the value of a picklist field to a certain value depending on the account chosen.  I cannot set it using the picklist.Text property, and I cannot find any good documentation that tells how to do this.  Can anyone give me an example of how to set a picklist field value in a C# code snippet event handler?
