Check box in a Combo Box

Iam working on a window application using .NET framework 2.0.

I want a check box + some text in a combobox.
User can select multiple items in combo box by using the check
My requirement is : I have a report page. User selects some data
and click on 'Show Report'. Iam showing (I must show) the report also
in the same page. When user selects some other data, and click on 'Show

Report' button new data will be populated.
On this page I have an "Items" Combo box. User may select more than one

Item. Since multi selection property is not there for combo box, Iam
forced to go for ListBox. But Listbox is occupying more space and the
look is bad.
I have seen a CheckedComboBox article here:

Its in VC++ I think. I need the same kind of functionality in .NET.
I hope its possible. But dont know how to start with it.
I tried creating a class that is inherited from ComboBox. The class
contains a CheckBox, ItemText Properties. But whats next? Iam unable to

proceed. Could you please help.............
Any ideas or code snippet.......... Please...............
