I did. I was under the impression that you can't get rid of the arrow to 
the side and make it display the dropdown menu as you type and change 
options. I'd like the user to continue to be able to type into the 
"parent" text control and watch the completions narrow.

Interesting to note: as a learning exercise I attempted to implement 
this idea without modality (i.e. call Show() instead of ShowModal()). 
This was some progress in that the list box does respond to events but 
you have to move the mouse to do it. A kill focus event seems to occur 
in the text control after I Show() my frame. Once that happens, I can't 
seem to replace the focus (by calling SetFocus()) back to the text control.
