Drop Down / Text Box control Combo

Hello all and thank you for reading this post.

Question: Visual Studio 2005 has numerous instances of a control used in
their interface that I have never seen before. It is the control that looks
like a drop down box, but when you click on the little down arrow, a larger
text box appears below saying: "Press enter to begin a new line..."

Is this control somewhere in the tool box? I cannot find it anywhere. Do I
manually have to program it so that I make a little picture of this arrow and
if they click on it I bring a hiddnen text box to the front and unhide it?
There has got to be a simpler way...

I am a javascript newbie and did not see anything quite like this in sections 1-5 of the FAQ or on a Google search. Is there a generic javascript example of a compound drop-down/text box, i.e., if the user selects an item from the drop-down, the selected item populates the text box, but the user can also type their own ad-hoc value into the text box if desired? I would like to include such a control in a php/mysql web form I am...

I have read the posts on using Sendkeys to dropdown the list in a combo box. However, doesn't that require the combo box to have the focus? My situation is a little different. I have a text box and on the BeforeUpdate of that text box I check a value. If the value > 0, then the text box is OK and the program can continue. If the value = 0 or null, I want a combo box to drop down. For simplicity here are the control names:

Is it possible to link one drop-down box to another? For example, if a name is chosen from a drop-down list, can another drop-down list then automatically display the person's office as a result of the choice made in the first drop-down list? If so, how can that be done? I am working with 'Teach Yourself Microsoft Access' and I didn't see it discussed in that book (if it's even possible to do). Or would I just have to create linked tables...

I have an application I am developing that has a Combo Box that is intended to show a list of available tables in the selected DSN.

BUT ... if the specified DSN is invalid, I can display an appropriate error message, but then then empty dropdown list is...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
