I want to display the "scroll bar" line in the combo...how you can see on this picture.

Now i'have another question...is possible to have a color item in the combo box?...and is possible to set height of the combo?

Now another question on an array, for example i've this array :

Global $Country[10] = ['Africa',' Algeria',' Angola',' Burkina Faso',' Burundi',' Cameroon',' Cape Verde',' Congo']

Is possible to break the array line like that:

Global $Country[10] &= ['Africa','Algeria','Angola','Burkina Faso','Burundi'] ;I want break the line
Global $Country[10] &= ['Cameroon','Cape Verde','Congo'] ;I want to continue the array contenent in another line

But it dont work...how i can do that?

StungStang,

Just add the $WS_VSCROLL style to the combo to get a scrolbar. :P

But you will need to limit the size of the combo - if you do not then the number of elements can reach quite large values before the scrollbar appears. You do this by sending the scroll bar a $CB_SETMINVISIBLE message - although it actually sets the maximum number of visible elements! :)

And you use the _ character to extend lines.

Here are all 3 of these in a simple script:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>

Global $aCountry[8] = ['Africa','Algeria','Angola','Burkina Faso','Burundi', _
                    'Cameroon','Cape Verde','Congo'] ; Use _ to extend lines

$sData = ""
For $i = 0 To 7
    $sData &= $aCountry[$i] & "|"
Next

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

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 100, 20, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWNLIST,$WS_VSCROLL)) ; Add scroll bar

GUICtrlSendMsg($hCombo, $CB_SETMINVISIBLE, 5, 0) ; Limit max number of items to show

GUICtrlSetData($hCombo, $sData)

GUISetState()

While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch

WEnd

All clear? :)

StungStang,

Colour is not as easy as that - take a look here for some ideas. :)

If you need to display colors, I propose to use ComboBoxEx and then use Icons to display the color and not modify the textcolor.

Edit: See the example for _GUICtrlComboBoxEx_SetItemImage.

StungStang,

I do not believe that is possible. You will need to either reload your combo without the item you do not want to select (my preferred solution) or deal with the item once it has been selected. :)
