Hi everyone!

How can I change the size of the dropdown of a combobox to be dynamic in size from fixed width? I cannot find an event or a property that allows me to flip a switch. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Of course you have such event:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.combobox.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.resize.aspx[^].

But you don't need to use it. Instead, you should better use fluid layout of the whole form, using a hierarchy nested panels and docking (see System.Windows.Forms.Control.Dock), with System.Windows.Forms.Control.Padding. Please see my past answers:
Zom Out malfunctions when Screen resolution changes[^],
how to dock button so that it can adjust with the form[^] (see a tiny code sample here).

Yes you can change the width of the dropdown porting using the DropDownWidth property of ComboBox

Check this ComboBox.DropDownWidth Property[^]

but you need to set the new size of your choice. it wont expand/shrink automatically
