I'm trying create a drop down menu (listbox? ) in visual studio. However, it's killing me I cant work out two things:
1. how to make it drop down instead of just flick between items - i click the side and it changes list item but doesnt drop down the list for easier access
2. how to make an event occur for clicking an individual item in the list instead of any...

Many thanks

Do you use MFC / WinForms or pure WinAPI32?

winapi32 but I would have thought something this simple can just be done with clicks in microsoft visual c++ express? :(

Seen many questions and no answers on google so to those who also have this issue:

FlatStyle: Popup in toolbox. This also stops the user being able to edit it as a text box

this->comboBox1->DropDownStyle = System::Windows::Forms::ComboBoxStyle::DropDownList;
            this->comboBox1->FlatStyle = System::Windows::Forms::FlatStyle::Popup;
