In ComboBox it is possible to change foreground/background colour. But only the colours will vary for all units.
      Combo1. BackColor
      Combo1. ForeColor
For separate units it is possible to change colour only in ListView and TreeView. Try to look for components of other manufacturers.

kdg2000, you should remove your address details from your profile. It is recommended by EE not to include such personal information in a public location. Your EMail address in the profile is normal but a precise address is not a good idea. Also you are right to an extent in your answer however it is possible if you subclass the combo box to change the colour/font etc of individual rows in a combobox. I was going to post a comment in this question originally before it was PAQ'd but had to go into a meeting. Anyway hope it helps (after the fact perhaps but there you go).
