I'd like to suggest a documentation change, or clarification.
In the help file for certain functions, there is this description "The width of the control (default is the previously used width).", now I've never run into an issue with this before because I've always manually sized my controls as needed for what I'm doing with them. Today however, I was quickly throwing together a script and happened to use GUICtrlCreateCombo and GUICtrlCreateInput, and I didn't specify a width/height for either of them. I had also placed a label above both of those controls, also not specifying a width/height because I let them be auto-sized to the text in them. When I displayed the GUI, I noticed that the controls had sized themselves to the size of the label above it. I think it would be helpful to have mentioned in the help file for these types of controls, that use that sizing method, to mention that the default is the width of the previous control created regardless of what type of control that was. The description above could suggest that it takes the width of the previously created control of that type. Just a thought.
If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to an XP machine, and I'm not going to.
