Hi Thomaz,

If it's not supported, you should do it by hand. When you add items to the drop-down, change the text to upper case right before you add the item. To allow users to add their own items, write some code for when the drop-down looses focus (in the LostFocus event) and change the case for the item that has been inserted.

There may be other ways as well, but this is what I would try first.

Here is how I did it. In the TextChanged event of the ComboBox add the following code:

ComboBox thisBox = ( ComboBox )sender;
int cursorPosition = thisBox.SelectionStart;
thisBox.Text = thisBox.Text.ToUpper();
thisBox.SelectionStart = cursorPosition;

I hope this helps.
