Label inside of a combo box?

10 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm working with a simple GUI combo box but I want to add an item that would not be selectable and only used to seperate the list of items into groups labled by that item. Is this possible?

BeBoP,

You will have to do it in code like this: ;)

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

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

$hCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "1|2|3|------|4|5|6")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hCombo
            ; Look for the separator
            If GUICtrlRead($hCombo) = "------" Then
                ; And remove it
                _GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($hCombo, "")
            EndIf
            ; Prove there is nothing to read
            ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlRead($hCombo) & @CRLF)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

All clear? :)

After a web search, I found this post and found it interesting but not as a true separator line!

I know it can be done using OwnerDraw / MeasureItem that are also used in ModernMenu, I tried to adapt the code but is giving many errors ...

I do not know much about combobox and if anyone can give would help a great value!

I found this link ComboBox OwnerDraw in 5 minutes who talks a lot but could not adapt!
