When an item is selected from the list it displays in the text field of the combo box and I want to clear it without clearing the items in the list. I've tried [drop down list name].text = "" but it doesn't work since the text entering field in a drop down list box is read only. How should I do that. By the way, I'm coding in VB.NET 2005 so please give answers in VB.NET 2005.

This should work:

<pre>ComboBox1.SelectedIndex = -1</pre>
