I would like to ask if there is a way to prevent elements in a Combobox from
being selected by the user *without* removing them from the list. Ideally I
would like to 'ghost' or 'shadow' them out so the user sees them in a diferent
rendering to the other selectable items in the list.

Many, many thanks. This is a neat forum.

Yes you can do this. Please go here:

..and look at the first two examples in chapter 9.
The second example shows how you can do this, but it
builds on the first examples so you'll need to
read them both.
