Hi experts,

I and using data aware versions of a combo box the Data Combo. I want to be able to resize the Data Combo's Drop Down width. I have done this on a regulare Combox Box this with the SendMessage API call and CB_SETDROPPEDWIDTH. I would like the same for the Data Combo, and tried it with the CB_SETDROPPEDWIDTH constant with no success.

Can anyone help me with thi.

Thanks this is interesting. I believe that it is meant for resizing controls on a form resize event. I only want to resize the data combo's drop down list in order to be able to display the longest list entry without having to make the data combo initial size as wide.

Here is an example of what I had in mind, http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/comboapi/combowidthadv.htm
