Hello,
 
I have a c# and I have a combo box.
I entered the values I want the user to choose from to the combo box items list.
 
The user still has an option to put the cursor on the combo box and type whatever he wants.
How can I disable this option, and don't allow the user to type anything in the combo box?
I want the user to be able only to choose values from the items list I created.
 
Thanks

Change the property DropDownStyle as DropDownList then user can not edit items from Combo box.

Look carefully at the properties of the combo box. One of them does what you want.
Since your profile does not provide any information , I can't know whether more detailed information would be relevant.
 
Hope this helps,
Pablo.

That was exactly my question, which of the properties.
But never mind, I got the answer.
