When you click the drop down and hover over items in the list how do you get the value that is being hovered over with without selecting an item?

When you click on the combobox and hover the mouse over the values in the combobox. I want to know what the value is of the highlighted item. I'm not going to select it so I can't use the dropdownclosed or selectedindex changed . I have a function that will bring up the tooltip but I need to know what the value is for the highligted item in the combobox to get the tooltip from the database.
