combo box in VB 6.0

mOskimOski Member Posts: 44
I was wondering if its possible to keep the text of a combo box from being deleted or edited in run time but still the drop down thinggie can still be clicked and the items can still be clicked or picked. I've tried to set the combo box's enabled property to false but its no good because you can't click the items... I also tried the locked property but I also can't use it because it disables the items in the combo box from being clicked....

I really don't know this so if there is anyone out there that knows how, please tell me....

thank you so much...

    ListStyle-Property of the ComboBox?

    DropDownList or DropDownCombo?
