How do you set a combo box on a Windows Form to read-only?  It is not one of the combo box properties like it is in the properties of a Textbox control.


You can disable the Combobox so that no data can be entered into the Textbox portion or the list portion of the control as follows:

      set comboBox1::Enabled to false

If you want your users to be able to pick from the list but not enter a value in the Textbox then change the dropdownstyle property to dropdownlist.


comboBox1::DropDownStyle to type ComboBoxStyle::DropDownList
