ComboBox DropDownStyle question

P: n/a
The way I understand it is there are three types of DropDownStyles for
a ComboBox control in VB.net 2003, Simple, DropDown and DropDownList. I
like the way DropDownList will zero in on your choice when you enter
some characters. As far as I can tell, this is the only style that does
that. But I have found that if I choose a value when the current row
should be null in the associated column that I cannot delete the value.
The DEL key seems not to function for a ComboBox if the DropDownStyle
is DropDownList. I can delete the value if the style is Simple or
DropDown, but neither of those styles will do the zero in thingy. How
can I have my cake and eat it too?

TIA,

Actually it doesn't zero in after entering multiple characters. It will
jump to the first entry that begins with the character you type. If you
type a second (or third, etc) character, it will just to the first
entry that begins with that character. Still, a usefull feature, IMHO.
