TComboBox combines an edit box with a scrollable list.

A TComboBox component is an edit box with a scrollable drop-down list attached to it. Users can select an item from the list or type directly into the edit box.

Note: The width of the button in a TComboBox is equal to the width that Windows uses for scrollbars. This width depends on the color scheme that the user has chosen (by right-clicking the desktop, selecting Properties, and choosing Appearance). If you carefully size your combo box so all the text is visible, then a user running under a different color scheme may find that the text is obscured by the button. One solution is to set the scrollbar wide when developing the application. Most color schemes use a scrollbar that is at most 21 pixels wide.
