I want to create a ComboBox control, which has no border and no 3d-look. I want to create a flat ComboBox which has only the Dropdown push button. I tried modifying style, but it won't work. Could anyone help me?

thanks in advance,
sachin

Since the CComboBox is already built for you by MFC, and it doesn't give you the option of changing it to a non-3D look, you can't do it that easily.  If it must be done, then the approach is to draw the CComboBox youself.  Use your OnPaint method, get the CRect of the CComboBox, draw it the way you want it, and don't forget to write the text into the box.
