When fillng list property at runtime with dropdownlist style
it gives me the message "Property is read-only".If I set the style property after filling the list property then it displays "cannot assign to a read-only property" message.
Is there any way to use the comboboxes with the dropdownlist style by filling the list property at runtime.

Thanks in advance

There is only one way i know of:
Fill the combo box
Then iterate thru the items till you get the item you want
Then assign the listindex
This will set the list property for the read only type combo box
For the other style you can directly type

Here the combo box style property is set to 2 ie read only

cmb1.AddItem "one"
cmb1.AddItem "two"
cmb1.AddItem "three"
cmb1.AddItem "four"

    For n = 0 To cmb1.ListCount - 1
        If cmb1.List(n) = "three" Then Exit For
    Next n
    If n < cmb1.ListCount Then
        cmb1.ListIndex = n
    Else
        cmb1.ListIndex = -1
    End If

If there is a simpler way i would be really grateful!!
