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

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!!
