I have a ComboBox which has 3 values

such as - NewYork,NewJersey,Boston.

Combobox.selectedIndex = 1  which is Boston,

On one scenario, i need to set only for Boston. I believe we can do it by ReadOnly or something like that.

I dont want to go for Enable = True / False. How to set this ?

Comboboxs don't have a readonly property.
Either disable it or remove the unwanted selection possibilities (ie. it only has Boston in the list part)

Here is an example:

Form1.cs -
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Linq;

namespace EE_Q28620474
{
	public partial class Form1 : Form
	{
		private List<string> cities = new List<string>() { "New York", "New Jersey", "Boston" };

		public Form1()
		{
			InitializeComponent();
		}

		private void OnLoad(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
		{
			cmbAll.DataSource = cities;
			cmbBOS.DataSource = (from city in cities where city.Equals("Boston") select city).ToList();
			cmbNY.DataSource = (from city in cities where city.Equals("New York") select city).ToList();
			cmbNJ.DataSource = (from city in cities where city.Equals("New Jersey") select city).ToList();
		}
	}
}

Open in new window

Form1.Designer.cs -
namespace EE_Q28620474
{
	partial class Form1
	{

		private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components = null;

		/// Clean up any resources being used.
		/// </summary>
		/// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
		protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
		{
			if (disposing && (components != null))
			{
				components.Dispose();
			}
			base.Dispose(disposing);
		}

		#region Windows Form Designer generated code

			this.Name = "Form1";
			this.Text = "Form1";
			this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.OnLoad);
			this.ResumeLayout(false);
			this.PerformLayout();

		}

		#endregion

		private System.Windows.Forms.Label lblAll;
		private System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox cmbAll;
		private System.Windows.Forms.Label lblNewYork;
		private System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox cmbNY;
		private System.Windows.Forms.Label lblNewJersey;
		private System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox cmbNJ;
		private System.Windows.Forms.Label lblBoston;
		private System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox cmbBOS;

	}
}

Open in new window

Which produces the following output -Capture.JPGBut this then raises the question of why make the user chose a drop down item if it only has one item to choose?  Just food for thought.
