How to set the font of the content present in the ComboBox in C#?

In Windows forms, ComboBox provides two different features in a single control, it means ComboBox works as both TextBox and ListBox. In ComboBox, only one item is displayed at a time and the rest of the items are present in the drop-down menu. You are allowed to set the font of the content present in your ComboBox by using Font Property. You can set this property using two different methods:

1. Design-Time: It is the easiest method to set the font of the elements present in the ComboBox control using the following steps:

  • Step 1: Create a windows form as shown in the below image:
    Visual Studio -> File -> New -> Project -> WindowsFormApp
  • Step 2: Drag the ComboBox control from the ToolBox and drop it on the windows form. You are allowed to place a ComboBox control anywhere on the windows form according to your need.
  • Step 3: After drag and drop you will go to the properties of the ComboBox control to set the font of the elements present in the ComboBox.



    Output:

2. Run-Time: It is a little bit trickier than the above method. In this method, you can set the font of the elements present in the ComboBox programmatically with the help of given syntax:

public virtual System.Drawing.Font Font { get; set; }

Here, the Font indicates the font applied to the ComboBox content. Following steps are used to set the font of the ComboBox elements:

  • Step 1: Create a combobox using the ComboBox() constructor is provided by the ComboBox class.
    // Creating ComboBox using ComboBox class
    ComboBox mybox = new ComboBox();
    
  • Step 2: After creating ComboBox, set the font of the ComboBox elements.
    // Set the font of the combobox elements
    mybox.Font = new Font("Chiller", 12);
    
  • Step 3: And last add this combobox control to form using Add() method.
    // Add this ComboBox to form
    this.Controls.Add(mybox);
    

    Example:

    filter_none

    edit
    close

    play_arrow

    link
    brightness_4
    code

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
      
    namespace WindowsFormsApp11 {
      
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
      
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
      
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // Creating and setting the properties of label
            Label l = new Label();
            l.Location = new Point(222, 80);
            l.Font = new Font("Chiller", 12);
            l.Size = new Size(99, 18);
            l.Text = "Select city name";
      
            // Adding this label to the form
            this.Controls.Add(l);
      
            // Creating and setting the properties of comboBox
            ComboBox mybox = new ComboBox();
            mybox.Location = new Point(327, 77);
            mybox.Size = new Size(216, 26);
            mybox.Name = "My_Cobo_Box";
            mybox.Font = new Font("Chiller", 12);
            mybox.Items.Add("Mumbai");
            mybox.Items.Add("Delhi");
            mybox.Items.Add("Jaipur");
            mybox.Items.Add("Kolkata");
            mybox.Items.Add("Bengaluru");
      
            // Adding this ComboBox to the form
            this.Controls.Add(mybox);
        }
    }
    }
