Hi,
    I want to create an Owner drawn combo box.
    In most examples of owner drawn ComboBox in C#, I found that though we can create a new look for the combobox, the scrollbar, which appears when the ComboBox is expanded, is not owner drawn.

    How do I create an Owner Drawn combobox with the scrollbar also customized? It would be grateful if you could provide the code also.

well, the problem is that most examples override the DrawItem event. This won't allow you to customize anything but the item itself. You will have to use much Interop for this and override the native WM_PAINT message.
Here is some example:
