Hi PPaul,

to remove boreder:

begin
   MakeComboFlat(Combobox1, True);
......

procedure MakeComboFlat(ABox: TWinControl; AFlat: Boolean);
var
  HR: HRgn;
  NR: HRgn;
begin
  if ABox = nil then exit;
  GetWindowRgn(ABox.Handle, HR);
  if AFlat then
    NR := CreateRectRgn(2, 2, ABox.Width - 3, ABox.Height - 3)
  else
    NR := CreateRectRgn(0, 0, ABox.Width, ABox.Height);

  SetWindowRgn(ABox.Handle, NR, True);
  DeleteObject(HR);
end;
