usercontrol zorder

I am trying to build a custom combobox (Usercontrol with textbox, listview and button constituent controls)

When the combobox "expand" (click on button) I change the UserControl.Height property. This fires a UserControl_Resize event where I resize the constituent control (the listview) to to get the "drop-down" effect.

How do I make the expanded part display "above" all the other controls on the form. I tried using zorder(0) before I start sizing the usercontrol, but this did not help.

Hi, EnricoS.
some time ago I had simillar porblem...
Then I used a non-modal form and put the listview on it.
Then, when I had to show the listview, I displayed the form.

Not very smart, but it works.

If you put a frame control on your control and put the listview in the frame, I think you'll get the result you're looking for.  The frame will appear on top of all controls, including buttons.
