1) ComboBox is different from listbox, you can only choose one item;
2) if you want get the select item you need to add a handler to IndexChaged event; something like this:
        private void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (-1 != this.comboBox1.SelectedIndex)
                ListItem oItem = (ListItem)this.comboBox1.SelectedItem;
                //this.comboBox1.Text = oItem.Text;
