I could change the combo box style.  But I can't find which style to change it to.  I've selected all 3 styles in the dropdownstyle property box but none of them do what I want.  Also, I do not want to select the first row because the whole point is to allow the matching value to be shown in the combo box when it is typed into the combo box (sort of like the index textbox in visual studio's help page).

In KeyDown Event, set DroppedDown property to true


            private void comboBox1_KeyPress(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs e)
            {
                  this.comboBox1.DroppedDown = true;
            }

Cheers,
