Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the combo box is sorted; otherwise, false. The default is false.

This property specifies whether the ToolStripComboBox sorts existing entries and add new entries to the appropriate sorted position in the list. You can use this property to automatically sort items in a ToolStripComboBox. As items are added to a sorted ToolStripComboBox, the items are moved to the appropriate location in the sorted list. When you set the property to false, new items are added to the end of the existing list. The sort is case-insensitive and in alphabetically ascending order.
