Limiting ComboBox to Collection Items

Hi, I' using VB 2005, WinForm. I have a ComboBox on my Form the has three items in its "Items" collection (i.e ItemA, ItemB and ItemC).

I want to make sure my user can only choose from these three values and cannot add his/her own value(s) to the text property of the ComboBox. In other words somewhat like ReadOnly, but the ComboBox does not have a ReadOnly property.

Can someone suggest a way to prevent the user from adding their own values?

Thanks,
Fulano
