Is there any way to use a more advanced combo box in the xpmenus toolbars?
I see a listview property in the combo box bar item, which I assume makes it a ComboBoxExt-type combo, but can I somehow make it behave like a ComboDropDown?
Wait, I think I can answer this one myself:
Use a XPMenus.DropDownBarItem and use whatever fancy list in the PopupControlContainer?

Refer to the following KnowledgeBase Article:
Also take a look at the XPMenusMDI sample which is part of Menus Package samples.
Right click barManager1 and choose Add Detached Bar
You can then drop a control to this bar. If you want to add mulitple controls you can place a panel in the detached bar and then add controls to the panel.

I''d rather use the ComboDropDown item than the detatched mode, to get a coherent look and customization with the rest of the toolbar.
This is the problem:
-The ComboBoxBarItem looks the way i want (i.e. like an ordinary combo) but does not support my custom control to be dropped down.
-The DropDownBarItem looks the way I want when dropped down, but does not look or act like a combo on the toolbar.
-The detatched bars will not allow customizing together with the rest of the toolbar, and the normal ComboDropDown that I can use on the detached bar cannot be set to use the same height as my other combos on the toolbar.
I''d like to use the DropDownBarItem, but is there any way to customize the look of it to look more like a combo box?

Thanks for your feedback regarding the ComboBoxBarItem.
With reference to your questions:
a) You can specify any listbox control for the dropdown in a ComboBoxBarItem. Refer again to the XPMenusMDI sample where it demonstrates how you can use a FontListBox.
b)The ComboBoxBarItem provides a Combobox-like interface in the bar for you by enabling you to plug in a listbox.
c)There is no easy way to do this. Since the menu items cannot be owner drawn, this cannot be easily accomplished.
