Multilevel combobox

9 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi all,

probably I've do a very bad search..

Is not possible to have a "multilevel" combobox?

Item1
--subitem1 1
--subitem1 2
--subitem1 3
Item2
--subitem2 1
--subitem2 2
Item3
--subitem3 1
Item4
--subitem4 1
--subitem4 2
--subitem4 3
--subitem4 4
--subitem4 5

Item[1,2,3,4] are labels.

Thanks!

maba,

I do not think you can do it with styles. But you can always code something like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>

$sData = "Item1|--subitem1 1|--subitem1 2|--subitem1 3|Item2|--subitem2 1|--subitem2 2|Item3|--subitem3 1|Item4|--subitem4 1|--subitem4 2|--subitem4 3|--subitem4 4|--subitem4 5"

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sData)

GUISetState()

While 1

	Switch GUIGetMsg()
		Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
			Exit
		Case $cCombo
			$sSel = GUICtrlRead($cCombo)
			If StringLeft($sSel, 2) <> "--" Then
				_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($cCombo, "")
			Else
				MsgBox(0, "Combo Sel", $sSel)
			EndIf
	EndSwitch

WEnd

Any help? :)

Oooh yes. Good start!

I'll try to apply a style to the "headers", and remove -- from the sub*. If is it possible.

As ever.. Thanks M23 :)

Silly test..

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
$sData = "Item1|--subitem1 1|--subitem1 2|--subitem1 3|Item2|--subitem2 1|--subitem2 2|Item3|--subitem3 1|Item4|--subitem4 1|--subitem4 2|--subitem4 3|--subitem4 4|--subitem4 5"
$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)
$cCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, $sData)
$cCombo2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 40, 200, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
_GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($cCombo2)
GUISetFont(-1, 800)
$a = _GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "Item1")
GUICtrlSetFont($a, 800)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Bold", 250, 40)
GUISetFont(-1, 400)
_GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "  subitem1 1")
_GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "  subitem1 2")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Normal", 250, 60)
_GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($cCombo2)
GUISetState()
While 1
	Switch GUIGetMsg()
		Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
			Exit
		Case $cCombo
			$sSel = GUICtrlRead($cCombo)
			If StringLeft($sSel, 2) <> "--" Then
				_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($cCombo, "")
			Else
				MsgBox(0, "Combo Sel", $sSel)
			EndIf
	EndSwitch
WEnd

I think that I have to use

_WM_MEASUREITEM
_WM_DRAWITEM

:)

Melba23, watch your crystal ball and tell me if it is possible? :oops:

$cCombo2 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 40, 200, 20, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)
_GUICtrlComboBox_BeginUpdate($cCombo2)
; for cycle
	_GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "Item1") ;<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< how to make this bold?
		; other for cycle
		_GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "  subitem1 1")
		_GUICtrlComboBox_AddString($cCombo2, "  subitem1 2")
_GUICtrlComboBox_EndUpdate($cCombo2)

maba,

This is the only "coloured combo" script I have seen posted - a full owner-drawn affair. :oops:

But as for as incorporating it into your script, you are on your own. :bye:
