How to increase the vertical length of drop down list items in list box?

6 posts in this topic

I need to make a list of all country extensions but Koda limits the list of items...

I've tried every setting, docking ect...the drop down only shows about 25% of what I inputed into the "Items" box, fiddled around with "index" but still no change.

But it limits my list and not all items are showing? How can I set it so it displays every items on the list?

Is there a way to set this up in Koda or do I have to do it manually in Scite?

Your style setting for the combo boxes are eliminating the scroll bar by not including the $WS_VSCROLL setting, so no scroll bar, only show what is able to show on the screen. You'd be better off not setting the style at all on the combo.

Hi Brewman,

Perfect answer!

I wasn't aware of the Styles tab, this ressembles HTML/CSS forms that I'm more familiar with ;)

Everytime I need to see the script pop up I have to close Koda.

Can I remodify the GUI by repasting the code in Koda for editing?

Is there a way to keep Koda and Scite open simultaneously so I can see changes in real time and then fix it in Koda?

Thanks

Koda is useful for placement of items in a GUI, to actually make this GUI work you have to modify what you're given from it most of the time. I rarely use Koda myself to create a GUI, usually when it has a lot of items on it that I might need to move around to see how it looks. I usually create the form myself, because then I have a much better grasp of how it's created and what everything is doing in it.

Learn to code without the crutch, it might take a bit longer to get everything placed where you want it, but you'll learn a LOT more about what you're doing and how everything works if you do it yourself. Just a bit of advice, feel free to take it for what it's worth. :)

Hi Brewman,

Yes I agree with you 100%, much better in the long run to know how things work. Actually the ONLY way to do things for long term!
