ListView inside ComboBox

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm working on a new project with autoit and I'm trying to get a listview control inside a combobox. If it's possible to set a combobox up for multiple selections using checkboxes, I'd gladly settle for doing that instead.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm running out of random things to try and strings to search for on here and google. Thanks in advance!

As far as I know, comboboxes can only ever make the one selection. :)

Why not use a button that opens a child GUI with a ListView in it - you can then make your multiple selections and then read them before closing the child GUI again. ;)

Open spoiler to see my UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

I kinda figured I might be shooting for the impossible, I figured I would use a child GUI or another alternative if I can't find a way to get a listview inside a combo box.. Thanks for the quick reply, any other suggestions/solutions welcome!
