I want to add something like:

--------------------
New Item

at the end of the itemlist in a ComboBox and the next to the last line the "--------------------" should not be selectable, is there any way to do this?

The only thing I can think of is something like this:
procedure TForm1.ComboBox1Select(Sender: TObject);
begin
if ComboBox1.Text='--------' then Combobox1.ClearSelection;
end;

Use the OnCloseUp Event
procedure TForm1.ComboBox1CloseUp(Sender: TObject);
var
  Index: Integer;
begin
  Index := ComboBox1.ItemIndex;
  if (Index >= 0) and (Pos('--', ComboBox1.Items[Index]) = 1) then
    ComboBox1.ItemIndex := -1;
end;

Open in new window

Using OnChange event...
procedure TForm1.ComboBox1Change(Sender: TObject);
var
  s:string;
begin
  s:=(sender as TComboBox).Text;
  if pos('-----',s)>0 then (sender as TComboBox).ItemIndex:=-1;
end;

Open in new window
