I want to have a flat style combo box on my dialog forms. I am trying to create one using Sysncfusion ComboBoxAdv control. This control has DrawListPortion method for drawing drop down portion of a combo box. But this method provides access to the Edit Portion (through PaintEvenArgs’ ClipRectangle property) rather than drop down portion of the combo box. Is there anyway I could get access to the drop down portion so that I can draw my items in there?

Hi Ranu,

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

If your intention is to get access and customize to the drop down portion of the ComboBoxAdv means please use comboBoxAdv1_SelectionChangeCommitted event,DropDownButton property in your application.

Please refer the attached sample.


The above sample which illustrates how to add a new comboBoxAdv item using comboBoxAdv1_SelectionChangeCommitted Event and use of DropDownButton property.

Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Rashidha,

Thanks a lot for the quick reply.

I think I didn’t explain my problem clearly. Actually, I want to draw some geometric figures in the drop down list. For example, instead of having ‘circle, square, triangle’ strings, I want to draw these figures in the list. When I use ComboBoxAdv.DrawListPortion(PaintEventArgs e) method, it draws the figures in the edit portion of the combo box. But these figures should appear in the drop down portion. How can I do that?
