Does anyone know how to capture the combobox closeup event ?

The DateTimePicker has one, but the combobox only seems to raise the dropdown event, not the close up event.

Any ideas how to capture it ?

thanks for the link flavo, but not really what i'm after.

i wan't to caputre the event that is raised when the combobox collapses back to its normal state. ie there is a dropdown event when the list drops down, but not a close up event when it goes back up.

Can't you use the SelectionChanged event? That fires when the combo collapses after the user makes a selection.
