In the MultiColumnComboBox, GridListControl is used as a DropDown control. The appearance of the DropDown list can be changed by using the GridVisualStyles property.

C#

//Sets the Office2003 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2003;
//Sets the System Theme ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.SystemTheme;
// Sets the Metro Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Metro;
//Sets the Office2007 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2007Blue;
// Sets the Office2007 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2007Black;
// Sets the Office2007 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2007Silver;
// Sets the Office2010 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2010Blue;
// Sets the Office2010 Style ListBox in the MultiColumnComboBox.
this.multiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid.GridVisualStyles = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.GridVisualStyles.Office2010Black;
