Can a combo box be made to drop down and display its list when you "mouse over" the box.
I don't see an event for this. There is obviously and event that causes the control tip to to appear.
This is not always desirable but I have an instance when this would be nice.
thanks for tips

In the MOUSEMOVE event of the combobox, put:

Just a second note that the ControlTip appearance is controlled by a default Access behaviour; there is no trappable event for that.

Please nobody laugh.
I got an error saying the control did not have focus so I added a line to setfocus, before dropdown.
Now if I don't want to select a value, I would like the list to close and maintain null.
What is the opposite to dropdown and what event would I use.
Why is the simple stuff like this?

OK I got it
I used the mouse move event on the form to setfocus to some other control. That closed the list after I left the combobox.
