Combo Box No Edit + Scroll

Recommended Posts


I've looked everywhere for this and the only solution given is to use BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL), which stops the user from entering their own information into the control. However, by doing this, the scrollbar disappears if you have a lot of entries.

Take a look at this:

#include <ComboConstants.au3>

$GUI = GUICreate("", 625, 443)
$cmCountries = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 232, 64, 145, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Afghanistan|Albania|Algeria|Andorra|Angola|Antigua and Barbuda|Argentina|Armenia|Australia|Austria|Azerbaijan|Bahamas|Bahrain|Bangladesh|Barbados|Belarus|Belgium|Belize|Benin|Bhutan|Bolivia|Bosnia and Herzegovina|Botswana|Brazil|Brunei|Bulgaria|Burkina Faso|Burundi|Cambodia|Cameroon|Canada|Cape Verde|Central African Republic|Chad|Chile|China|Colombia|Comoros|Congo (Brazzaville)|Congo, Democratic Republic of the|Costa Rica|Côte d'Ivoire|Croatia|Cuba|Cyprus|Czech Republic|Denmark|Djibouti|Dominica|Dominican Republic|East Timor (Timor Timur)|Ecuador|Egypt|El Salvador|Equatorial Guinea|Eritrea|Estonia|Ethiopia|Fiji|Finland|France|Gabon|Gambia, The|Georgia|Germany|Ghana|Greece|Grenad|Guatemala|Guinea|Guinea-Bissau|Guyana|Haiti|Honduras|Hungary|Iceland|India|Indonesia|Iran|Iraq|Ireland|Israel|Italy|Jamaica|Japan|Jordan|Kazakhstan|Kenya|Kiribati|Korea, North|Korea, South|Kuwait|Kyrgyzstan|Laos|Latvia|Lebanon|Lesotho|Liberia|Libya|Liechtenstein|Lithuania|Luxembourg|Macedonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of|Madagascar|Malawi|Malaysia|Maldives|Mali|Malta|Marshall Islands|Mauritania|Mauritius|Mexico|Micronesia, Federated States of|Moldova|Monaco|Mongolia|Montenegro|Morocco|Mozambique|Myanmar (Burma)|Namibia|Nauru|Nepal|Netherlands|New Zealand|Nicaragua|Niger|Nigeria|Norway|Oman|Pakistan|Palau|Panama|Papua New Guinea|Paraguay|Peru|Philippines|Poland|Portugal|Qatar|Romania|Russia|Rwanda|Saint Kitts and Nevis|Saint Lucia|Saint Vincent and The Grenadines|Samoa|San Marino|Sao Tome and Principe|Saudi Arabia|Senegal|Serbia|Seychelles|Sierra Leone|Singapore|Slovakia|Slovenia|Solomon Islands|Somalia|South Africa|Spain|Sri Lanka|Sudan|Suriname|Swaziland|Sweden|Switzerland|Syria|Taiwan|Tajikistan|Tanzania|Thailand|Togo|Tonga|Trinidad and Tobago|Tunisia|Turkey|Turkmenistan|Tuvalu|Uganda|Ukraine|United Arab Emirates|United Kingdom|United States|Uruguay|Uzbekistan|Vanuatu|Vatican City|Venezuela|Vietnam|Western Sahara|Yemen|Zambia|Zimbabwe")

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case -3


So any solution to this?

The scrollbar is missing because in stting the style you have overwritten the default $WS_VSCROLL style. Add it back in and hey presto! :D

$cmCountries = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 232, 64, 145, 25, BitOr($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST, $WS_VSCROLL))

Style should be set as:

$cmCountries = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 232, 64, 145, 25, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO,$CBS_DROPDOWNLIST))
