Listbox is a tool provided by visual basic that list the number of items in a specific manner and provides a facility to select one of the entry from the list only using drop down list,there are some extensions to listbox like Dir listbox,File listbox,etc.

Combobox is a combination of textbox and listbox,i.e,you can select the one of the required entity from the list either by typing in the box or by using drop down list.
