writing combobox context to text file

[Newbie Alert]
I have a combobox that populates its items from a text file when its form
loads. I have added to one of my buttons click events some code to add any
entrys that are manually entered to the combo - something along the lines
of:

cboProcess.Item s.Add(cboProces s.Text);

This all works fine. What I want to be able to do is give the user an
option to save the contents of the combo box back to the text file, so
that the next time they run the app any manually added entrys are there.
The code I used to read the file uses a Streamreader, I sort of hacked it
together by reading a couple of webpages - (I'm very much a beginner.) Now
I assume I should be using a Streamwriter to write the file back, but I
cant figure out how to iterate through the combobox contents to write it
back, any help greatly appreciated.

Jon

StreamWriter OutFile = new StreamWriter("C :\MyFile.txt",f alse);

foreach(object L in cboProcess.Item s)
{
OutFile.WriteLi ne(L.ToString() );
}

OutFile.Close() ;

Have a look at the code below. It's a really simple example where I have added two controls to a form, a textbox and a combo box. Both add owner drawn context menus to the controls, but the combobox will NOT draw custom drawn context menu item. I have tried EVERYTHING (deriving from MenuItem and even tried calling TrackPopupMenuEx directly), but it just won't work! I am currently reflecting over the combobox source code (oh joy!), but...

Can I use a bound ComboBox for both browsing and editing? I'm working on a small, standalone database application using Visual C#.NET 2003 and an Access data file. In order to keep the number of different screens down to a minimum, I'm trying to use the same Windows Forms for both browsing and for updating. This works fine for TextBoxes, but I'm running into problems with my DropDownLists (ComboBoxes).

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,...
