    How to set the style of the ComboBox control if it is dynamically added to the form

    I dynamically add a ComboBox control to the form:
    Set Combo1 = Controls.Add("VB.ComboBox", "Combo1")

    I want to set its style to "Dropdown list":
    Combo1.style = 2

    But there is a compile error: "Can't assign to read-only property".

    Then how to set the style of the ComboBox control if it is dynamically added to the form? Thanks a lot.

    It uses check box and option box but maybe can use combo
