Multiple Checkboxes

4 posts in this topic

Hi:

I need multiple checkboxes in two columns. With Guictrlcreatelistview I can get only one column with checkboxes.

Is there any other method where I can get two columns of checkboxes in my GUI so that i can scroll down to click them. Having a scrolable GUI also does not solve the problem since other controls also move along.

Can someone guide me how to go about it?

Thanking in anticipation

Ajit

ajit,

Perhaps something along these lines (based on the examples in the Help file)?
