    Setting text in ComboBox, when style set as DropDownList

    Not sure why I never thought to sort the array myself and leave the ComboBox unsorted. This now works well for me. Thanks so much for your input.

    Setting text in ComboBox, when style set as DropDownList

    It would appear that setting element 0 of my ComboBox to "(choose)" won't work because I need to have my ComboBox sorted. I don't want "(choose)" to show up anywhere else in the Drop-down list other than the very first item. Or am I missing something?

    MeasureString help

    Thank you for the lengthy and helpful reply. Sadly, when using your code, I end up with the same output as what I originally had. What's confusing is that my textbox is 40 x 304, and the width of my test string is 326. How can that be? Here are the details: FONT - Microsoft Sans Serif...

    Max lines in a multi-line textbox

    Although this does work if you change the font to Courier New, there must be a more generic way to handle it, regardless of the font. Can anyone help with that? I'd like to keep my font Microsoft Sans Serif, if possible. Thanks!

    Max lines in a multi-line textbox

    Sorry about the lack of formatting. I'll make note of it for future posts. After spending some time on it, I now have this working exactly as I want. I first had to change the font of my textbox to be Courier New, so every character was the same spacing. For my example, I had a textbox that...

    Max lines in a multi-line textbox

    I did some searching an another form, and found this, which does mostly work. The only remaining issue I have is to disable wordwrap (which would allow a 3rd line of text in my example). Private Sub TextBox1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) _...

    Max lines in a multi-line textbox

    Is there a way to control the number of lines in a multi-line textbox. I want to have just one textbox and let it be only 2 lines max, but I need to allow the user to press "enter" to display text on the next line. Any thoughts?

    Printing a form that has verical or horizontal scrollbars

    I have created forms that may have scrollbars on them, depending on what the user's screen resolution is set to. I already have existing logic that prints the forms just fine from my computer (with higher resolution and no scrollbars), but how do I ensure that when a "print" button is clicked...
