as soon as you click your mouse, whether by selecting somethingfrom the combobox or when you click on another control the combobox closes.

In what instance does the combobox stay open in your application where you need ot to close?

is the OnChange Event a form event or a control event? Under what circumstances exactly do you want the combobox to drop down?
