I have comboboxes driven on a form so they are only enabled when required.

When enabled = false the default combobox colour and lablel font colour is yellow.  Can either of these not change or be a diffent colour whilst enabled = false?

Set Locked = True at the same time. This will render the control to be the same color and such as a "normal" control:

YourCombo.Enabled = False
YourCombo.Locked = True
