Trying to change ComboBox style

7 posts in this topic

Code like this doesn't affect it:

GUICtrlSetStyle($Combo1, $CBS_SIMPLE)

Is there a reason or something that means the style of a Combobox cannot be changed?

motionman95,

Some controls and styles cannot be changed post-creation - looks like this one of them. :blink:

The Help file for GUICtrlSetStyle does warn you:

"Remarks - Some styles cannot be changed dynamically, check MSDN documentation. $CBS_UPPERCASE combo style is one example."

You cannot change it using _WinAPI_SetWindowLong and $GWL_STYLE either, by the way. ;)

motionman95,

It will not stay out, but it does come out: :blink:

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

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

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "1|2|3|4")

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Show List", 10, 100, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            _GUICtrlComboBox_ShowDropDown($hCombo, True)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Any good? ;)

motionmabn95,

Could you please post what you did to solve your problem - it might help someone else later. :blink:

Unless you gave up on the whole idea, of course. ;)
