Default Controls question

Is it possible to use a web control on a windows form? I kind of remember reading that you can use a windows form control on a Web form, so I was wandering if the reverse is true and if so how do you do so. I want to use the dropdown list (web control) on a windows form. The windows combo list only accepts strings, and I need to have a text (display) and an index (db record key) paired with in. I have done this before using the dropdownlist on web forms before but the ListItemView does not support the same methods as the ListItem (namely the 'value').

Any help would be great, thanks.
