Colour of combo box items

How can I change the colour of individual list items in a combo box?  It must affect individual items, not the whole list.  Also, it needs to be interchangable at run time (i.e. I set it to one colour when initialising and then later decide to change it to something else).

The only way I know of to do this would be an owner draw combo box.  You will need to draw the text yourself, but you can choose the color for the item when you draw it.
