    This new feature looks great to me! :)

    Go for the default (light) theme, Shades of Grey or Shades of Blue. I just added the Blue one.

Combo Box wish... (1 Viewer)



Does Access support a combo box that is "non-editable"? I'm wishing for a control with the pop-up aspects of a combo box but with the inability to attempt edits of a list box.

Sure, I can use the Limit to List property but I'm searching after a cleaner user interface than that.

I've tried placing a locked transparent text box over the text portion of the combo box, and while this helps to partially achieve my goal, there are still certain times when the end-user can attempt to "edit" the combo box.

Have I just not found the right combination of combo box properties to achieve my combo box wish, or is this (common) control type really not supported by Access?


I tried "locking" the combo box as mentioned above but this prohibits ANY selection from the pop-up combo list. Thanks anyway.
