Does anybody know of any Combobox components that allow you to insert (and indent) a bitmap with text. I don't have time to read on OwnerDraw properties etc. (if I did I wouldn't be asking anyway). I am currently using a component by plasmatech BUT it behaves kind of weird after awhile, besides I don't want to pay for their components pack if i'm just going to use only one. The component should look and behave just like windows explorer combo box (But it should allow me to use whatever bitmaps I want).

ZifNab:
    I am giving you the points in recognition of your participation.
    However, I downloaded these components and found them
    more or less useless (at least for what I had planned). The
    GlyphComboBox component does not support indentation of
    images and text. It locks up when the form is first brought up
    (and remains locked until any other control on the form is
    given focus). After a while, this component behaves as if it
    had a mind of its own (flickers, etc.).

    What I was really looking for what a ComboBox component
    that behaves like the one used in Explorer (including the
    ability to select your images and indentation !!).

     Thanks anyway !!!
