Hi All,

I want the user to only select the items from the combo box and prevent them to type anything on the comboboxitem text box region. Can you please tell me which property to adjust?

Thanks
barkha

Hi Barkha
Setting  DropDownStyle property to DropDownList should do it.

Hi Ramesh,

Am afraid that doesn't help. After setting DropDownStyle property to DropDownList , user is still able to type anything on the combobox text region.

Please ignore my previous response.
The answer works for me . I didn't compile the assembly before.
