    This works fine for me
    Code:
    void comboBox1_DrawItem(object sender, DrawItemEventArgs e)
            {
                if (e.Index < 0) return;
    
                if (comboBox1.Items[e.Index].ToString().Contains(".99."))
                    e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(Color.Red), (Rectangle)e.Bounds);
    
                e.Graphics.DrawString(comboBox1.Items[e.Index].ToString(), e.Font, new SolidBrush(comboBox1.ForeColor), new Point(e.Bounds.X, e.Bounds.Y));
            }
    Probably your error is that you don't use the item index
