How to custom draw in a ComboBox?

Three steps involved:

Step 1: Create a custom class derived from ComboBox and in the constructor set this code:
this.DrawMode = DrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed;

Step 2: Override the OnDrawItem() method like:
protected override void OnDrawItem(DrawItemEventArgs e)

Step 3: Write custom drawing code using the e argument like:
e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(e.BackColor), e.Bounds);
