Combo Box in VB.NET

How do you make a combo box in VB.NET to work while not allowing changes to the text?  When I set to enabled = false, of course, it doesn't work.  Which parameter allows the user to select and disallow the text to be chaned?

  You can use:

  ComboBox1.DropDownStyle = ComboBoxStyle.DropDownList

  This way you can select item and cannot change text by typing.
