how to edit text in a combobox

P: 51

I have a combobox which has dropdown style set to "dropdownlist"(since i dont want the element getting populated in the combobox to be edited).

Apart from populating the comboxbox from items form the file am giving an extra item "New" which should allow the user to add new element.

but the problem which i come across is since the dropdown list dont allow th user to edit the text am not able to edit nethng.

So could anyone tell me how to make tht particular text enable on index change

If the problem is that you can't edit text while the style is DropDownList, but the text IS editable when the style is DropDown.... then change the style back to DropDown when the user selects the 'New' option.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ((ComboBox)sender).DropDownStyle = ComboBoxStyle.DropDown;
Then when the focus leaves that control, change the style back to DropDownList.
