Hi vbel,
The height of the combobox cannot be chaged unless if you make it
owner-draw.

By owner-draw you mean I have to paint the ComboBox myself?
Well, this won't help because I cannot change the height
anyways. I mean I can paint lets say a height of 50, but
the real height will stay the original...19 or so.

Private Declare Auto Function SendMessage Lib "user32.dll" ( _

Private Const CB_SETITEMHEIGHT As Int32 = &H153

Private Sub Form1_Load( _
ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs _

SetComboEditHeight(Me.ComboBox1, 50)
End Sub

Private Sub SetComboEditHeight( _

ByVal NewHeight As Int32 _

SendMessage(Control.Handle, CB_SETITEMHEIGHT, -1, NewHeight)
Control.Refresh()
End Sub

If you set your ComboBox.IntegralHeight Property to true it will automatically resize.
and change the ItemHeight and also set the DrawMode.OwnerDrawVariable.


Note : If the DrawMode property is set to DrawMode.OwnerDrawVariable, this property has no effect.
