I have attached a picture of a combo box. I would like to see more of the 2nd column of the box. Is there way to expand the view of just the 2nd column? I attached a picture.

In the properties of the combo box, in the format tab (the first tab) you can specify the size you want, each column is separated by a semi-colon. ie: 1cm;2.5cm

I tried that in the column width and it didn't do anything. It did convert it to inches. Still looks the same.

Make sure that the ListWidth property (on the format tab) is wide enough to accommodate the width you set for the ColumnWidth.

adjust the property List Width (maybe it is set to auto)
try 3.5 or any other value
