Make a combobox like a textbox

Is there a way to make a combobox look like a textbox.  Basically I have an ID that I need the DataSource propoerty but then want to display it as a textbox so they can't click a down arrow.

Set the Locked Property to Yes.  That way, they cannot select anything, but you can display as you like.

Have you tried Locked = true / enabled = false in your combo properties?

An alternative if you don't want the arrow visible at all is to use a listbox and size it down to a single row of data.

Or use a textbox and query your result, which can be stored in a disconnected recordset.
