How to multiselect a combo box

P: n/a
I like the combo box because you can scroll through items nicely, but the
list box just has the navigation where you can go up and down. I am trying
to allow the user to multiselect items. With the list box, he does not like
it because if he clicks on the nav bar, it loses the selection!! even if he
holds down the shift.

Is there a way to do this with a combo box? I just see the multi select for
the list box.

Thanks in advance

No. Multi-select is not available for combo boxes.

Make sure the list box has it's MulitSelect property to Extended. Then
the user will be able to make mulitple selections by 2 ways. For
uncontiguous selections hold the Ctrl key down while clicking. For
contiguous selections use the Shift key while clicking to select
everything from the previous selection to the current selection.
