ComboBox Max List Items?

6 posts in this topic

I've googled everything I could and cant find my answer so I am posting, Is there a limit to the amount of items that can go in the ComboBox? I only can get 29 and nothing shows after that. And is there a way to make it a scrolling combobox?

Note: I am using Koda to create my gui, if I am approching this the wrong way I apologize. I am new to all of this.

Thanks.

What styles did you use for your combo? I can tell you for sure that a combo will hold a lot more than 29 items and it should have the scroll by default unless you messed that up with styles.

Yeah I did gum up the styles thanks for pointing me in the right direction. It is much appreciated. Any way to shorten how far down the comboBox drops? It seems to go the length of the form. Even though it scrolls; it only scrolls 2 items.

$cmbBranch = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Please Select Your Branch", 170, 40, 160, 25, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_COMBO)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "000 - St. Louis/HQ|002 - East Peoria|003 - Sikeston|004 - Decatur|005 - Columbia|006 - LaSalle|008 - Mt.

carlosrapa,

Here you go - a bit of an improvement: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

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

; Create combo empty
$cmbBranch = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 170, 40, 160, 25)
; Now add data
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "000 - St. Louis/HQ|002 - East Peoria|003 - Sikeston|004 - Decatur|005 - Columbia|006 - LaSalle|008 - Mt. Vernon|009 - Hannibal|011 - CAT/East Peoria|012 - CAT/Mossville|014 - CAT/Joliet|016 - CAT/Aurora|017 - CAT/Decatur|031 - Memphis|033 - Tupelo|034 - Jackson|035 - Jonesboro|037 - Little Rock|038 - Springdale|039 - Ft. Smith|040 - Kansas City|041 - Springfield|042 - Joplin|043 - Wichita|044 - St. Joseph|060 - Indianapolis|061 - Ft. Wayne|062 - Lafayette|063 - Muncie|065 - Terre Haute|069 - Columbus|Feitek|Global")
; Now set the edit text - this way it is not one of the possible selections
_GUICtrlComboBox_SetEditText($cmbBranch, "Please Select Your Branch")
; And now limit the number of items to show to 15
GUICtrlSendMsg($cmbBranch, $CB_SETMINVISIBLE, 15, 0)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Note that $CB_SETMINVISIBLE actually sets the MAX visible - blame Bill Gates, not me! :D

Please ask if you have any questions. :)

carlosrapa,

Yes, edit the first post and select the "Use full editor" option - that opens up the title for editing as well. :)

And please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button - I know what I wrote and it just pads the thread unneccarily. ;)
