GUICtrlCreateCombo only allow listed values

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to disallow the user from entering a value in a combobox that is not in the list? I am using GUICtrlCreateCombo to create a combobox and GUICtrlSetDate to populate the combobox with values. I can select values in the list fine but I noticed that you could also type any text you want in the combobox. I don't want the users to be able to type text, I only want them to be able to select from the values listed.

Is there a style or exstyle to set this?

Use the $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST style. ;)

Not the best explanation in the Help file, but that is how MS describe it as well. :)
