Remarks

Before you use this control for the first time in the forms designer, add the Microsoft Outlook Combo Box Control to the control toolbox. You can only add this control to a form region in an Outlook form using the forms designer.

If the Click event is implemented but the DropButtonClick event is not implemented, then clicking the drop button will fire only the Click event.
