Lo all,
    I need a way of locking a combo box to the keyboard but allowing the mouse to still change the item, but also I need to still allow the quick search functionality of the keys, ie if I have an alphabetic list of car models I want to be able to type a 'D' and have all the list jump to those (as it does already), but I dont want the user to be able to amend the text in the combobox only pick available items in the list.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Ben

So change the style to DropdownList and this should do exactly that.

Change the Style property of the ComboBox from the default to 2 - DropDoen List.
