How to add combo box in ListView

AOA, All…. if you want to add a combo box in listview…. you have to use the bound property of listview item to get the rectangular height of the combo box, here is the code which is tested and is correct…. You need a listview named listview1 with only one column
You will need to add some item in the listview1 (can be added at runtime or at design time)
For each listviewitem as listviewitem in listview1.items
Dim Combo as new combobox
combo.items.add("Ahmed Muneeb is good Programmer")
combo.dropdownstyle = dropdownlist
combo.location= new point(item.bounds.right,item.bounds.y)

    Combo.dropdownstyle = dropdownlist;
