I have am using a DBCombo box and I would like to restrict the user to only selecting items from the list. However, if I set the lock property to true the you can't select from the list. And if I set the lock property to false you can type anything you want in the text box.
How can I do this?

Hi chaos_59,
In the keypress event of DBCombo just type in
keyascii = 0
They can't enter any thing.Also ensure that you are checking for Tab/Enter keys.
I think it should solve your problem.

Chaos_59,

Try setting the property Style of the DBComboBox to
2 - dbcDropdownList.
