    Toolstrip combobox select highlight

    I have a toolstrip with a combobox. The Autocompletemode is set to "Suggest ". After the selectedindex is changed, I move to a different control. Like this,
    Code:
        Private Sub LastNameToolStripComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles LastNameToolStripComboBox.SelectedIndexChanged
            Dim indexnumber As Integer = Me.ProducersBindingSource.Find("ProducerId", Me.LastNameToolStripComboBox.Text.Substring(75))
            If indexnumber = -1 Then
                MessageBox.Show("Last Name Name Not Found!")
            Else
                Me.ProducersBindingSource.Position = indexnumber
                Me.FirstNameTextBox.Select()
                Me.LastNameToolStripComboBox.Text = Me.LastNameToolStripComboBox.Text.Substring(0, 65)
            End If
        End Sub
    The issue is this, if I select from the drop down list, it works the way a want.
    But, if I type something and then select from the "Suggest" list that pops up, the text in the Toolstrip Combobox remains highlighted, (blue). I can't figure out how to deselect the text.

    Any information will be appriciated

    I can get you text that is never highlighted but that may not be what you want?

    vb.net Code:
    1. Private Sub ToolStripComboBox1_Paint(sender As System.Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles ToolStripComboBox1.Paint
    2.         ToolStripComboBox1.SelectionLength = 0
    3.     End Sub
    As the 6-dimensional mathematics professor said to the brain surgeon, "It ain't Rocket Science!"

    Re: [RESOLVED] Toolstrip combobox select highlight

    I spoke to soon. This won''t allow you to highlight the text so you can type in a different name. I should have paid more attend to the word "never" in your post.
