That's not how a combo box works. You could provide a textbox and an ADD button to do that though.

no other go!!!!

i was trying if i miss something...... thanks :)

Actually you can do that all you need is a button(to signify when the typing is done) and a handler for its click event:

Private Sub Button4_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click
    If ComboBox1.Text <> "" AndAlso Not ComboBox1.Items.Contains(ComboBox1.Text) Then
    End If
End Sub
commented: Perfect to do that +7

Or you can do it with ComboBox1's LostFocus Event
