Is there anyway to change the text in a combobox  item when selected?  
ex.

Current combobox items
                                      Dog
                                      Cat
                                      xwife
when selected
                                      * Dog
                                      * Cat
                                      * xwife
Thanks

did you try handling it in the selecteditemchange() event of the combobox?
other questions: do you need the current selected item have an * or do you need the whole list to have *s? when do you need this to happen, right after you changed your selection, or when the combobox has input focus?

Try the following code it will surely work for u :

     
        'Inserting a New Item (with * preceeded in the text) in the Combo Box at the Index at which the item was selected
        ComboBox1.Items.Insert(ComboBox1.Items.IndexOf(ComboBox1.SelectedItem), "*" & ComboBox1.GetItemText(ComboBox1.SelectedItem))
       
        'Removing the Item Without *
        ComboBox1.Items.RemoveAt(ComboBox1.Items.IndexOf(ComboBox1.SelectedItem))

Try It
