Hi all, I have a question, I have been looking for a command on this and have not had any luck.  I have a radiobuttonlist with letters on it, when they pick a letter that is what populates a dropdown list.  They want, when they pick a letter, the dropdownlist automatically opens up.  In other words, so they don't have to click on the dropdownlist to make it open up...  In VS2005 VB

Thanks,

Use the ComboBox.DroppedDown() Property:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.combobox.droppeddown.aspx

Setting it to True will make the DropDown portion display:

    ComboBox1.DroppedDown = True

I've seen the combobox referenced, but I only have a dropdownlist....  
VBPassion, is it a long process ??  I am hoping to be able to simply do something like Idle Mind said, but for a dropdownlist...
Thanks,
Randy

While I did not get the answer for a webform, I assume it can't be done.  I did get the answer for a non .net project.  So I awarded the points after deciding I was not going to get an answer for .net.

Thanks,
Randy
