Combo list and Scrollbars

Recommended Posts

5even

I did some search here, and there are tons of links to "combo" and "scrollbars" and even some together, but nothing of what I was looking for. the help file is phenomenal!! the best I've seen so far. I understand that the scrollbars show up after 30 items. but as you can see below, I have a small gui, and would rather have the scrollbars come up earlier for conformity, or even better, only as deep as the listed items up to 10 - 15 items max display

$hCombo = _GUICtrlComboBox_Create($hGUI, "", 120, 50, 125, 150)

everything works fine.. but there is no scrollbars. I've tried various settings(via the help file), but they just make the combo list ugly or messed up.

any suggestions

If you have this

$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("erty", 280, 88, 40, $Height, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$WS_VSCROLL))

you will have as many lines drop down as will fit in $height pixels.

You can send a message to a combo to set the no. of iyems which are visible

GUICtrlSendMsg($combo1,$CB_SETMINVISIBLE,12,0);sets 12 items

#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>


#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 633, 447, 93, 125)
$l = GUICtrlCreateLabel("drops = ",10,30,130,20)
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("erty", 280, 88, 40, 80, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$WS_VSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData($Combo1, "dgdgagrf drg dgr |adg |adg |dgr |drg d|gr adrg |ftre|dgdgagrf drg dgr |adg |dgr |gr adrg| drg d|gr adrg |dgdgagrf drg dgr |adg |dgr |drg d|gr adrg |dgdgagrf drg dgr |adg |dgr |drg d|gr adrg |dgr drg dgnh|jm df |f g| asef |aef d|g sadf earg ")
$b = GUICtrlCreateButton('up',10,10,120,20)

GUICtrlSendMsg($combo1,$CB_SETMINVISIBLE,8,0)
$ht = 13
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $b
            If $ht > 290 Then $ht = 20
            GUICtrlSetPos($combo1,280,88,95,$ht + 13)
            GUICtrlSetData($l,$ht)
            $ht += 13
    EndSwitch
WEnd
