use "key" and "value"

like...
System.Collections.Generic.List<KeyValuePair<string, string>> ComBoData = new List<KeyValuePair<string, string>>();
                        ComBoData.Add(new KeyValuePair<string, string>(xElm.GetAttribute("Title").ToString(), xElm.GetAttribute("ID").ToString()));
                        ddl_List.DataSource = ComBoData;
                        ddl_List.DisplayMember = "value";
                        ddl_List.ValueMember = "key";

Hope this is correct
ddl_List.DisplayMember = "Key";
ddl_List.ValueMember = "Value";
But the result is nothing :(
even in ddl_List.text it has the value

hmm... problem was you are trying to create new object ComBoData in every loop, so it always contains one value

change the code like...
try
	{
 
		System.Collections.Generic.List<KeyValuePair<string , string>> ComBoData = new List<KeyValuePair<string , string>>();
		foreach (System.Xml.XmlElement xElm in xDoc.DocumentElement.ChildNodes)
		{
			if (xElm.Name.ToLower() == "list")
			{
				ComBoData.Add(new KeyValuePair<string , string>(xElm.GetAttribute("Title").ToString() , xElm.GetAttribute("ID").ToString()));
			}
		}
		ddl_List.DataSource = ComBoData;
		ddl_List.DisplayMember = "key";
		ddl_List.ValueMember = "value";
	}
	catch (Exception ex)
	{
		MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString());
	}
