This is not possible .. the style is set at creation time and cannot be changed (attempting to do so has no effect).

But you can cheat

see:
http://www.codeguru.com/combobox/combo_dropdown_dropdownlist.shtml

which does the same thing (sorta) by making the edit-box readonly

and also:
http://www.codeguru.com/combobox/SwitchCombo.shtml

which emulates an editable combo by creating an edit box over it (sneaky).

The other solution is to have BOTH types of control present at the same location (update both together when editing the contents) and make one or the other visible depending on what you want.

Some styles (most) CAN be modified at run time.  But some (unfortunately) cannot.  That's just the way Windows is.
