Experts,

How can the text box of a combo box be disabled so a user can't type in information, but still have the user be able to access the drop down list.....combobox.enable, and combobox.lock lock off both the text and drop down menu....? Thanks

Thanks,

Trying to be able to set the text property, just not have the user be able to set the text property?  with drop down list, the text property becomes invalid?

Is there a way to set the style property to 2 and still be able to set the combo box text property?

Is there a way to disable the textbox part of the combo box from a user, but still be able to set the text property and the user to use the drop down?  Maybe this is difficult?

Disable user input:

Private Sub Combo1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    KeyAscii = 0
End Sub
