Default Creating custom Combo box control

Hi all

How can I create a combo box activex control?
Actually I have made a combo box control using a textbox, command button and a listview control. But the problem is that when I am using this the activex control on a form the listview control is not appearing. I could not make it visible out of the activex control area like normal conbobox. Any body can help me please.

I guess you are doing this to add features to the existing combobox.
If that so, instead of writing your component from zero, why do not use a combobox in your activex?
To answer your question, you have to put your listBox in a bordless form that you will show modal (like a menu).

I think It is a good idea. I will try with this idea. Actually I need this to make a multicolumn combobox.
